Dr. Rubin’s B.A.(B.S.)-M.D. Program List

It has been 40 years since I graduated from medical school. Time does fly by fast. When I applied to college, I was not aware of any BS/MD programs. When my children graduated high school there were several. I find the list has changes yearly. Some years there were more and some years there has been less. However, I sense a trend over the last 5 years. Perhaps the pandemic has something to do with this new trend. Schools are moving away from high school programs. More and more schools offer an entry point from college, either as a freshman, sophomore, or junior. Some schools offer programs from both high school and college. In response to this trend, as of August 2023, I will provide 2 lists: early entry from high school or early entry from college. Keep in mind that most programs that will accept students early from college are not open to any student, rather, they will accept students who have attended specific colleges. This is a good option for students in high school who are not sure of their career choice or students who were not successful with a direct program. These programs are listed alphabetically by Medical School Name - not by college. These programs vary from year to year and there is no common or central application service. If you want to apply, you need to consult the specific school's website and their admissions office.  Please note that some programs have specific state residency requirements. Few accept foreign students but several will accept Canadian residents. If interested, click each link to learn about the specific program. A link may not work if the school has changed its site. Please email me if you find a bad link or if you know of a school that is not listed.

Good Luck with your search,

Dr. Rubin
