edited August 2012 in Multiple Degree Programs
can all of you please list as many 6 or 7 year medical schools
they are really hard to find on the internet and i know this forum has about 100 of them listed already but a list of them in 1 thread would be really helpful to a lot of people who want to apply to these programs
here are some of the ones i know:
Penn State (6 yr)
U of Miami (FL) (7 yr, dunno about 6)
UKMC (?)
please continue this list
thanks to all

    St. Louis University and NEOUCOM (Northeast Ohio University College of Medicine)
  • MediterraneanMediterranean Registered User Posts: 260 Junior Member
    University of Southern California
    University of California-San Diego (only by invite, CA residents)
    Drexel University
    Albany Medical College
    Temple University
    Vanderbilt University (ENGAGE Program)
    and, also UMDNJ

    There's probably a few others I'm missing.

    Another program is St. Louis University (not guaranteed admissions to med, but 98% acceptance rate for those who met the fairly decent requirements)

    Northwestern HPME
    Case Western
    Michigan (I've heard they're cutting this one...don't know if its going to continue)
    Sophie Davis
    Howard University?

    ...that's all that my exhausted brain can think of for now lol :D

    Can we also rate these in terms of their overall reputation or how hard they are to get into. Does anyone know if it is easier to get into RPI/AMC or Miami??
  • hannanaqhannanaq Registered User Posts: 488 Member
    yea double what coincollector said
    and could you put 6 or 7 next to em if they are 6 or 7 year programs
    i know if you get into any of these they are great medical schools but do prestigious universities like brown university have an upper-edge on academics than the other universities
    i really appreciate the posting
    anyone have any others?
  • AnitaVMAnitaVM Registered User Posts: 2,037 Senior Member

    btw i heard rice/baylor, brown, and northwestern were the hardest to get into outta all these
    although they are all probably as hard to get into as any ivy leage school

    anyone know anythign specifically on albany medical college and how good it is? because Usnews doesnt rank it. thanks.
  • ivybound1010ivybound1010 Registered User Posts: 485 Member
    btw i think what really matters is not the undergrad of the prog but their medical school beacuse when u go for residency moist important thing is where u got ur md from
    rice's baylor is ranked 13th or so in us news- reallllllly nice
    and northwestern is 20 -al so reaallllly nice
    probably why they are so hard to get into
    but i dont know much about the rpi/amc program....please somoen comment on that
  • bharath2007bharath2007 Registered User Posts: 76 Junior Member
    I do not know enough about St. Louis University to comment on the quality of the school. I think many high school seniors are worried about attending a medical school not ranked according to USNews, and I can understand that. However, medical school quality CANNOT be ascertained from any aspect of USNews. Higher ranked schools are so ranked because of NIH funding. If medical students have limited to no research opportunities what use is this. As a high school senior the best thing to do would be to first research the structure of the clinical years (years 3 and 4) how many weeks is each rotation is primary care emphasized or specialties, how is one evaluated and by whom, what safeguards the school has against scutwork, etc. This link is especially helpful
    The next thing after this is to look into whether the pre-clinical years (years 1 and 2) are Pass/Fail, Honors/Pass/Fail or Letter Grades (who wants to compete for grades). Problem Based Learning or traditional lectures, opportunities for research etc. I think the last thing one should look at are match lists for seniors, the types of fields and the places matched. Once a person has looked into all these things, can they get a feel for the quality of a medical school.

    does anyone have any info about University of Michigan Ann Arbor and University of Southern Cal's med programs
    someone earlier mentioned these programs and said Michigan was in the process of droping their's
    i wen to USC's website but i couldnt find the program
    if ne one can post a link, it would be great
    does anyone know of any others?
    i know there are only a handful of these programs in the US and very few people know about em so i just want to accumulate a bunch of schools in this thread because its very helpful info for aspiring doctors like ourselves :)
  • sat908sat908 Registered User Posts: 400 Member
    AMC is supposed to be a really good med school...there are 3 programs, RPI, Siena, and Union college...did anybody mention Washington University (St. Louis)?
  • hannanaqhannanaq Registered User Posts: 488 Member
    Does Washington Uninversity in St. Louis have a 6-8 yr med program?????
    it has one of the top 3 medical schools in the country!!!
    i would love to go there
  • whightknightwhightknight Registered User Posts: 66 Junior Member
    The BA/MD program at Washington University in St. Louis is total ********, literally.
    8 year program. You must maintain a 3.8 GPA throughout your 4 years of undergraduate. You must score a 36 on the MCAT to matriculate into the Medical School (36 is extremely high). And they only take 8 students in the entire nation. With such stats you could get into any med school in the country anyways.
  • hannanaqhannanaq Registered User Posts: 488 Member
    :| *gulp*
    ur kidding right
    that is why i want to go to a medical program were u dont have to worry about the MCATs
