Baccalaureate 2 MD Pathway Program (Toledo Bacc2MD)


The Department of Bioengineering is proud to offer a joint Bacc2MD Pathway program with the University of Toledo College of Medicine. This program is a sequential degree program: students first complete the undergraduate major followed by the M.D. at the UT College of Medicine. Students admitted to the Bacc2MD are provided a mentoring program through the College of Medicine during their undergraduate studies in bioengineering. Eligible Bacc2MD students are guaranteed an interview with the College of Medicine's Admissions committee through an early admissions pathway.
