BS/MD Program
Consulting Services

Help students succeed on the rigorous path to med school

Many universities offer a pre-med track for undergraduates—but a select few also offer what’s known as an accelerated or combined medical program (more commonly known as a BS/MD program).

These highly rigorous courses of study admit high schoolers to both their undergraduate institution and medical school through a single application during senior year of high school. Students receive both a bachelor’s and medical degree.

Spark Admissions college consultants help students who are certain they’re on the path to medical school maximize their chances of admission to these highly selective combined medical programs.

To be admitted, students need stellar academic profiles, strong pre-medical resumes, outstanding standardized test scores, and essays that clearly show how prepared and excited they are to become physicians.

Our expert team knows what it takes to help aspiring physicians achieve their goals—so much so that our acceptance rate at BS/MD programs is nearly 100%.
