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.

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. Anyone applying to enroll at GW in 2021 may choose to apply as a test-optional candidate. In other years, SAT or ACT examinations and SAT Subject Tests in science and mathematics are 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.
  • Choose whether or not to send test scores as part of your application. (For 2021 entry only, GW's B.A./M.D. program is test-optional.)

If you opt to submit test scores for entry in 2021, all standardized testing, including SAT Subject Tests, must be sent to George Washington University Undergraduate Admissions. Please do not send any scores to the George Washington University MD Program. Our College Board code is 5246 and our ACT code is 0664. U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and Canadian citizens may be considered for admission to the program.

Applicants who are not accepted to the B.A./M.D. program will be considered for admission to GW and scholarships under Regular Decision.
