Eight-Year Dual BS/MD Program with St. Bonaventure University

The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences and St. Bonaventure University (SBU) in New York have established an eight-year dual BS/MD program. Accepted students spend four years at St. Bonaventure for their undergraduate work. Applicants must be in their senior year of high school to apply for this program. Competitive academic work, SAT/ACTs, service, medically related experience are all required. 

A small number of qualified applicants will be interviewed at SBU in January. A second interview is conducted at GW in late February. Decisions are made by the Committee on Admissions for the MD program by 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 concerning promotion to the medical school during the fourth year of study at St. Bonaventure University. The bachelor's degree is awarded by SBU upon successful completion of degree requirements, before matriculation in the MD program.
