A joint program between GW's Columbian College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, the Seven-Year B.A./M.D. Program is designed for students who have decided to become physicians and want to accomplish that goal in a shorter amount of time than a traditional program of study usually requires. U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and Canadian citizens may be considered for admission to the program.

During the first three years of the program, a student must meet all general curriculum requirements and complete a major in the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences. Progress is reviewed annually by a special faculty committee. In the fourth year, students enroll in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences and begin formal medical training.

Applying to the Program

The deadline to apply to the program is November 15. Students applying to this program must apply as Regular Decision candidates to GW's Columbian College of Arts and Sciences; due to the timing of the interview process, students are not eligible to apply for Early Decision admission. An SAT or ACT examination is also required of B.A./M.D. applicants.

To apply to GW's B.A./M.D. program on Common App:

  • Select Regular Decision.
  • Choose Columbian College of Arts and Sciences as your primary college.
  • Submit your ACT or SAT score directly from the testing service to George Washington University Undergraduate Admissions (do NOT send any scores to the George Washington University MD Program). Our College Board code is 5246 and our ACT code is 0664.

Applicants who are not accepted to the B.A./M.D. program will be considered for admission to GW and merit scholarships under Regular Decision. Students may apply to the University Honors Program but will only be considered for Honors if they are not admitted to B.A./M.D.
