3 + 4 Medical

 

Students who entered Temple University as Health Scholars are able to be considered for early admissions to the Temple University School of Medicine as BA/MD Accelerated Option candidates. The 3+4 option is only with Temple University School of Medicine. If interested in applying to other schools, students will need to follow a 4+4 option.

 

Guidelines for Completion of the Bachelor Of Arts Degree In The College Of Science & Technology

  • Health Scholar Bachelor of Arts candidates in the College of Science and Technology (CST) must complete all requirements for the major before entering the School of Medicine with the exception of the following:

Biology majors may count up to three of the following first year Temple University School of Medicine courses as Biology electives:

MS1-Block1 (Human Gross Anatomy) as long as the student has not already received credit for Biology 2233; MS1-Block2 (Elements of Bioscience); MS1-Blocks3&4 (Biological Systems I&II); MS1-Block5 (Body Systems III - Neuroscience) as long as the student has not already received credit for Biology 3334 or Biology 3352; MS1-Block6 (Pathology - Pharmacology - Immunology).

  • College of Science and Technology Health Scholars may count up to 33 equivalent credit hours from the first year at the School of Medicine as equivalents of upper-level credits in the College of Science and Technology or the College of Liberal Arts.
  • College of Science and Technology Health Scholars may count up to 33 equivalent credit hours from the first year at the School of Medicine to fulfill their general credit hour requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Science and Technology.
  • Appropriate course sequences for majors offered by the College of Science and Technology will be available in the Office of Student Services (1810 Liacouras Walk, Suite 203) and will be shared with prospective students and current Health Scholars. Advising on progress toward career goal and eventual presentation as a Health Scholar (3+4 or 4+4) will occur through Pre-Professional Health Studies (1810 Liacouras Walk, Suite 100).

Suggested Semester-by-Semester Sequence for CST + Medical School 3+4 Program

Below is a suggested sequence of courses. Individual sequences will vary based on previous course work, AP credits, performance on University placement tests, and specific undergraduate major. Health Scholars who qualify for the 3+4 program will develop an individual program of study with Pre-Professional Health Studies during their first semester at the University.

First Year - Medical School
Approximately 34 credits of course work completed during the first year of Medical School will be applied to the CST
major's total number of earned hours needed for the completion of the degree requirements for graduation. For some
majors, course work will count as elective hours in the major; for all others, course work counts as elective hours
toward the completion of the minimum of 123 credits for the undergraduate degree. In planning an undergraduate
schedule it is essential to consult with an academic advisor.
 
Minimum Total Hours for a Bachelor of Arts degree: 123  

** Students must also complete a Biochemistry prerequisite course prior to entering TUSM. They may choose from either Chemistry 4401 or Biology 4375. Although not a requirement for taking the MCAT, it is recommended that students complete Biochemistry prior to taking the MCAT. In addition, students must also complete an Introduction to Psychology (PSY 1001) AND Introduction to Sociology (SOC 1176) course prior to taking the MCAT.

Notes:

1) Students in the Accelerated Program must have entered Temple University as Health Scholars through Pre-Professional Health Studies (PPHS) and have signed an "Intent to Pursue" form during their first semester. This form must be on file with PPHS.

2) Because students in an accelerated program must meet both the course requirements for entry to professional school and the course requirements for their major, it is necessary for these students to consult with an advisor in their major as well as PPHS as early in their academic career as possible. Failure to do so may make completing the required courses in the first 90 hours impossible.

3) The sequence presented here is a generic sequence; the actual sequence will depend on choice of major and number of Advanced Placement (AP) credits applied from the high school transcript.

4) With some exceptions, CST students must complete the requirements for their major within their first 90 hours; course work in the first year of professional school counts as elective hours toward degree completion.

5) Biology Majors - Some of the course work during the first year of Medical School can be counted for Biology electives as well as general electives for degree completion. Certain electives are excluded. Be sure to consult with an academic advisor.

6) Computer Science Majors - In order to complete the required courses in 3 years, Computer Science majors must have AP credit for Calculus I & II, take an overload, or enroll in summer session classes.
