Last week I mentioned that two of the BS/MD programs had been discontinued. While that is unfortunate, I have found several new BS/MD programs.
The University of Central Florida has a new BS/MD program to go with the medical school that they just opened several years ago. This is open to US residents from all states. The name of this program is the Burnett Medical Scholars Program.
Peru State College has a new BS/MD program with the University of Nebraska Medical Center called the Rural Health Opportunities Program that is for residents of rural Nebraska only.
Temple University has a BS/MD program with their own medical school known as the Pre-Med Health Scholar Program. The program is open to all US citizens.
Hampton University has a new BS/MD program with Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. This program is open to all US citizens and is simply known as a BS-MD Program.
The University of Houston and the DeBakey High School for Health Professions has a program with Baylor College of Medicine. This program has actually been around for some time but I have not listed it since it was only for students from one particular high school. In the interest of trying to be complete, I have decided to include this program in the book.
The A-PRIME TIME program in Texas is not available to students. Students start at The University of Texas at Brownsville, The University of Texas at El Paso or The University of Texas-Pan American and then attend medical school at The University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston or The University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
Finally, Caldwell College which already had a BS/MD program with New Jersey Medical School and St. George’s University School of Medicine, now has a third program with American University of Antigua College of Medicine. This is also open to all US residents.
I will be talking about each of these new programs in a bit more detail in the coming weeks.
