The BA/BS + MD Early Assurance program allows students the opportunity to enter the Drexel University College of Medicine after four years of undergraduate study at Drexel. The program was designed to meet the needs of students dedicated to a career in medicine who desire to be relieved of the pressure associated with the traditional application process. The program is open to majors in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology majors (all 4-year with co-op) in the College of Arts and Sciences, Biomedical Engineering (4-year with co-op) and Engineering (4-year with co-op).
The majority of BA/BS + MD students at Drexel are Biology majors. This is a highly accomplished group of students that are committed to pursuing a career in medicine.
Students in the BA/BS + MD program will all participate in a four year co-op program. They may also have the opportunity to engage in research through STAR (Students Tackling Advanced Research) or to participate in research with individual faculty within the Biology department and at Drexel Medical School. BA/BS + MD students also have opportunity for study abroad to engage in global opportunities.
Note: The Accelerated BA/BS + MD program is being discontinued, starting with students admitted for the fall of 2018. Starting in 2018 and moving forward, the BA/BS + MD program will be a 4+4 program. For students who are currently enrolled in the Accelerated BA/BS + MD program and were admitted 2017 and before, please contact Undergraduate Adviser Jennifer Rubin at email@example.com or 215.895.1805 if you have any questions.
