Seven-Year Dual BA/MD 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 BA/MD 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, health care experiences, and have a strong desire to become a physician. Applicants must be in their senior year of high school 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 MD program. Interviews are conducted by the MD Admissions Office in early February. 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 MD program in late March.

The acceptance to the MD program is provisional as program requirements must be maintained in order to transition into the MD program. The Committee on Admissions for the MD program reviews all students yearly and during the third year, when the bachelor's degree is awarded upon successful completion of undergraduate degree requirements before matriculation in the MD program.
