Seven-Year Dual B.A./M.D. Program with GW Columbian College of Arts and Sciences

A joint program of The George Washington University Columbian College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, the seven-year B.A./M.D. program is a small competitive program designed for high school seniors who exhibit academic excellence, competitive (90%) SAT/ACT scores, leadership in activities, community service, and health care experiences, and have a strong desire to become a physician. Applicants must be in their senior year of high school education to apply for this program. They apply directly to The George Washington University via the Undergraduate Admissions Office. 

A small percentage of qualified applicants will be selected to complete a second essay about their motivations for medicine and their interest in GW. These completed applications are reviewed by the Committee on Admissions for the M.D. Program. For those selected, the interview is conducted at GW by invitation in early February. Interviews are conducted by the M.D. Admissions Office on campus. At the interview, applicants have the opportunity to meet with undergraduate admissions, hear formal presentations, and meet current students. Decisions are made by the Committee on Admissions for the M.D. Program late March.

The acceptance to the M.D Program is provisional as program requirements must be maintained in order to transition into the M.D. Program. The Committee on Admissions for the M.D. Program reviews all students yearly and concerning promotion to the medical school during the third year, which is also when the bachelor's degree is awarded upon successful completion of degree requirements before matriculation in the M.D. Program.
