Earn a Medical Degree in 7 Years


The School of Medicine, in partnership with the University of Nevada, Reno, offers a seven-year accelerated pathway for a small number of motivated, mature high school seniors who intend to pursue a career in medicine.


Students accepted into this program will complete the first three years of the required undergraduate curriculum at University of Nevada, Reno, followed by the traditional four years of medical school. Students must select from a limited number of science majors for this program.


Students are awarded the B.S. degree after successful completion of the first year of medical school, and then awarded the M.D. degree after successful completion of all medical school requirements.


Applicants must be first-time freshmen applicants at University of Nevada, Reno. The program includes the full curriculum of both the undergraduate partner and the School of Medicine. In addition, summer coursework, research, and clinical experience will be required of students accepted into the program. For information, contact Megan Almansoori at or (775) 682-8354.
