3+4 Accelerated BA + MD
BA at CST and Doctor of Medicine at Temple's School of Medicine
Students with CST majors are eligible to apply for the accelerated seven year program to get a BA in CST and an MD at Temple's School of Medicine. All CST majors are eligible, but biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year Medical School courses as electives in their major.
Applicants to the 3 + 4 accelerated program must apply for the Health Scholars program with the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies during the fall of their senior year of high school. If interested in the accelerated option, accepted Health Scholars must apply for the 3 + 4 option during their first semester of their freshman year. Students apply to Temple’s School of Medicine during their junior year.
This program is designed for those planning to work in medicine, 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 regular CST BA with the exception that biology majors are also allowed to count certain of their first year Medical School courses as electives in their major.
