3 Plus 4 Pathway

Bachelor of Science in Premedical Health Studies—Medicine Pathway (BS/MD with SGU)

Very high-achieving high school students, who are admitted into the Bachelor of Science in Premedical Health Studies or Medical and Molecular Biology programs, have the opportunity to apply for the accelerated 3 + 4 option, in which students begin medical school after their third year of undergraduate study at MCPHS. After completing medical school at SGU, students receive both a B.S. and M.D. degree in seven years instead of eight.

MCPHS will review your academic record through the documents included in your MCPHS application. You have the option of sending in additional documents (new grades, recent internships, additional recommendations). All documents submitted to MCPHS will be shared with SGU and go on to a selection committee. You may be invited to an interview.

If selected, you will receive a conditional letter of admission from SGU, reserving your seat in an accredited medical school right out of high school.

Transfer students and current MCPHS students are also eligible to join this pathway. Students can enter the pathway program up until the last semester of their sophomore year if they want to participate in the 3+4.
