Penn State Accelerated BS/MD Program

The Penn State Accelerated Program, started in 1963, is a cooperative BS/MD program run by Sidney Kimmel Medical College (SKMC) and Pennsylvania State University.

We jointly select qualified high school seniors to earn both their BS and MD degrees in seven years. Students spend three years at Penn State's University Park campus and four years at Sidney Kimmel Medical College. Students receive their BS degree from PSU after passing their first year at SKMC and their MD degree after four years at SKMC.
