This fall, Georgia Regents University is offering students the opportunity to work on their bachelor's degree while also having conditional acceptance at medical school.
Students in this program must maintain a certain grade point average, achieve a satisfactory score on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), complete research requirements, volunteer work and career shadowing and successfully complete an interview. If they can achieve all this they will be accepted into medical school after their fourth year.
These dual degree programs offer a bridge that enables students to pursue medical school sooner rather than later.
High school students who want to become doctors can target their college search on schools that offer baccalaureate-medical degree programs. Students should be prepared for a heavy workload, you have to be dedicated to the program and focused on achieving your goals. Conditional acceptance to medical school comes at a price. Students are required to meet a challenging set of standards by their junior year, such as having a grade point average of at least 3.4 and an MCAT score of 30. It’s a lot of hard work!
