Pre-Medical Master’s Program

Earn both a Master’s degree in Biological Science (MSc) and get automatic admission to the MD program.

Pre-Med / MSc in Biological Science

The Pre-Med Master’s Program is an accelerated medical education program for career changers – those who have an undergraduate degree in something other than the typical pre-med majors. After successfully completing this 2-semester, 8-month program, students will gain automatic admission to MUA’s medical school and will be awarded a Masters Degree in Biological Science. The curriculum is offered on-campus or online, and students may begin the program any of three times per year – in January, May, or September. Students may attend the master’s program for pre-med students on a part-time basis, and online students may attend asynchronously to accommodate multiple time zones.

Why the Pre-Med Master’s Program?

Guaranteed Admittance to Med School

Students who successfully complete (with a GPA of at least 3.0) the Master’s Pre-Med program will be automatically admitted to the MD program at MUA, avoiding the challenges, expenses and delays of applying to medical schools separately.

Save Time

Enter medical school 8 months after beginning the program, rather than 2+ years in other comparable programs (1+ years in program plus ‘glide year’ while applying).

Earn 2 Degrees in Less Than 5 Years

Earn both a Master’s degree in Biological Science (MSc) and a Doctor of Medicine degree (MD).

Grow Your Network
