Application Process


Medicine is a very rewarding profession. It requires dedication, excellence and a passion for patient-care, which will be expected from all students. Applicants are strongly recommended to complete a high school biology course prior to enrolling.

  • The program is open to current high school sophomores, juniors, seniors, and undergraduate premedical students.
