Admissions Requirements

Required Course Work

Courses must be taken in residence (not online) from a regionally accredited college or university in the United States. Applicants must have completed at least a bachelor’s degree prior to enrollment into the M.D. Program. To be considered for an interview, an applicant should have completed the following course work:

  • General Biology – 2 Semesters (with labs)
  • General Chemistry – 2 Semesters (with labs)
  • Organic Chemistry – 2 Semesters (with labs)
  • General Physics – 2 Semesters (with labs)
  • College English – 2 Semesters
  • College Math – 2 Semesters

All majors are eligible to apply for admission to M.D. Program as long as the minimum academic requirements are met. Non-science majors are encouraged to take as many science courses as possible.

Additional Course Work

Additional course work that is recommended, but not required, includes biochemistry, embryology, cell biology, comparative anatomy, and genetics. Course work in humanities, natural sciences or communication arts is also encouraged.

While no specific college math courses are required, some college work in calculus is strongly recommended; familiarity with the principles of statistics for analysis of data is also important.
