Program Overview

The Innovation & Design Application (IDeA) Program provides Princeton University undergraduates in their sophomore year with early acceptance to Sidney Kimmel Medical College (SKMC) at Thomas Jefferson University. The Program invites Princeton University sophomores pursuing both science and non-traditional pre-med majors or concentrations, such as architecture, engineering and computer science, to apply for early admission to SKMC.
