Temple University School of Medicine now has a BS/MD program with Temple University Undergrad. This is known as the Pre-Med Health Scholar Program.
To be eligible for the program students need a minimum 3.8 unweighted GPA although the average GPA of accepted students is a 3.95. A minimum SAT score of 1,350 on critical reading and math is required or a 32 on the ACT. The average SAT of accepted students this past year was 697 on critical reading and 754 on math.
Students are also required to have completed four years each of high school math and science by the time they graduate.
Students interested in the program need to apply to the undergraduate college at Temple before submitting an application to the program and must be admitted to the college and honors program at Temple before the deadline date which is currently January 14. These dates often change so you should confirm the date if you are applying.
This program does require that transcripts be sent to both the undergraduate college and the Pre-Med Health Scholar Program so students need to be aware of that additional requirement.
This is structured as an 8 year program, however, during the first semester in the program, a student can apply to have it become a 7 year program. The determination is made primarily based on first semester grades at Temple.
Last year 72 students applied to the program, 28 were interviewed and 11 were admitted making this a good option to consider for a strong student.
To advance to the medical school students must have a 3.50 overall and science GPA with no more than one undergraduate grade of C and no failed courses. The MCAT is required with a score of 30 and no subscore less than 9.
The program is open to all US Citizens.
