Admission requirements for the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree program include a specific number of course units in various core subjects. This information can be found in Academic Requirements. Students in the Biomedical Option who plan to apply to the MD degree program must select their electives carefully to obtain the necessary credit for required subjects. It may also be necessary to take courses over and above those included in the Biomedical Option to meet the course unit requirements in all of the core subjects required for Medicine. Students in the Biomedical Option who plan to apply for admission to the MD degree program should contact their program advisor in the Fall term of second year for guidance on the selection of appropriate electives and any specific courses which would be in addition to those required for the engineering degree.
