Dual Degree Program in Medicine (Medical Scholars Program)
Hilit Mechaber, MD and the Medical Scholars and Honors Program Grads, May 2013
The Medical Scholars Program (MSP) provides for early admission of exceptionally capable University of Miami undergraduate students into the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. Students are accepted into the MSP upon the successful completion of their sophomore year (fourth semester at the University of Miami). With admission into the MSP, students are assured of a place in the freshman class of the School of Medicine after successfully fulfilling all of the MSP requirements, including completing at least the junior year of undergraduate studies at the University of Miami. Upon meeting all the program requirements, MSP students may begin their medical studies at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine one year earlier than usual, in the fall semester of their fourth year of study. Students may elect the option to complete FOUR years of undergraduate study and matriculate to Miller after graduating, rather than accelerate the undergraduate years.
