3+4 Accelerated BA + DPM
BA at CST and Doctor of Podiatric Medicine at Temple's School of Podiatric Medicine
Students with CST majors are eligible to apply for the accelerated seven year program to get a BA in CST and a DPM at TU’s School of Podiatric Medicine. All CST majors are eligible, but biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year Podiatry School courses as electives in their major.
Applicants to the 3 + 4 accelerated program must register with the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies during their first semester of their freshman year. Applicants for the accelerated program are due before the end of the fall semester of freshman year. Students apply to Temple’s School of Podiatric Medicine during their junior year.
This program is designed for those planning to work in podiatry, but completion of the CST major also enables individuals to enter careers in a variety of areas, depending on the major.
The BA portion of the program is the same as the CST BA with the exception that biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year Podiatric Medicine School courses as electives in their major.
