7 Year Program for High School Seniors

Program Overview:

The 7 year program consists of three years at an undergraduate school followed by a four-year medical program. Although not used to determine admission, the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test) must be taken by the end of the spring semester prior to matriculation. Promotion to the medical school is contingent upon achieving grades of B or better in all premedical courses and maintaining an overall grade point average of at least 3.5 each semester. The baccalaureate degree is awarded by the undergraduate institution upon completion of the first year of medical school. The MD degree is awarded by NJMS upon successful completion of all NJMS degree requirements.


Applicants must be high school seniors in the top 10 percent of their class and have a minimum combined score of 1400 on the Verbal and Math sections of the SAT.

The application process is initiated through one of our affiliated undergraduate institutions (listed below). The application deadline to the undergraduate schools is November 1st of senior year. Only those applicants with very strong support from the affiliated undergraduate school will be considered for a MD program interview.

We currently have a joint baccalaureate-MD degree program with the following institutions:
