The College of Natural Science and Mathematics, The College of Literature, Languages, and Social Sciences and the College of for Visual and Performing Arts offer a joint Baccalaureate/MD program with the University of Toledo’s College of Medicine. Students admitted to this program are guaranteed acceptance into the College of Medicine provided they maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 in their undergraduate degree program and meet all other College of Medicine’s admissions requirements. There are approximately five positions available to direct from high school students. Preference will be given to Ohio residents.
Note that a similar program known as the BS/MD program is offered by the University of Toldeo’s College of Engineering through their Department of Bioengineering. Prospective students must select one program and cannot apply to both. A comparison of the Bac/MD and BS/MD programs is provided to help prospective students determine which program is more appropriate.
The Baccalaureate/MD program allows students to complete a program of study that is seamlessly connected to and integrated with professional studies culminating in the medical degree. Depending on the undergraduate major, students will receive either a Bachelor Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree.
Program of Study
The Baccalaureate/MD program may be completed in either seven or eight years. Advanced placement credit earned, post-secondary course work, first-semester course placement, and the undergraduate major will determine the length of time necessary to earn both degrees. The Pmed Adviser will work with each Bac/MD student to develop an appropriate plan of study to accomplish the student’s goals.
The seven year plan consists of three years of undergraduate studies and fours years of study in the College of Medicine. Credit earned during the first year of medical school applies as partial fulfillment of the undergraduate degree requirements. Students wishing to complete the undergraduate degree prior to entering medical school will complete both degrees in eight years.
Students enrolled in the Bac/MD program can take advantage of special opportunities to enhance their academic and practical training, which include:
- Summer enrichment program - a 2-week enrichment program on the UT Health Science Campus
in the summer prior to the final academic year in the College of Arts and Sciences.
The program provides general exposure to the field of medicine and includes experiences
• Hands-on experience in the gross anatomy lab
• Clinical lectures on medical topics
• An introduction to patient interviewing
• Diversity and cultural competency exercises
• Contact with physicians in the clinical setting
- Bac/MD students will be paired with a medical student mentor as a means of fostering relationships with students on the Health Science Campus.
- Beginning in the second year at UT, each student will participate annually with medical practitioners in at least 4 clinical encounters arranged in coordination with the Baccalaureate/MD program adviser and the Associate Dean or Assistant Dean for Admissions in the College of Medicine. Students will discuss their experiences in a colloquium at the end of each semester.
- Prior to matriculation into the College of Medicine, all Bac/MD students will be required to complete a course related to medicine in a subject such as anthropology, ethics, geography, history, public health/public policy, social work, or sociology. As part of the course, students will be required to complete a position paper relating a topic learned in the course to their future medical career.
For admission to the program it is strongly recommended that students have:
- a high school GPA of at least a 3.8 on a 4.0 scale
- an ACT composite score of at least 29 or an SAT Critical reading/Math score of 1300 or higher

College of Medicine Admission Requirements
To retain their seat in the College of Medicine, students accepted into the Bac/MD program must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5 and must submit an AMCAS application to the University of Toledo’s College of Medicine one year prior to matriculating into the medical school. When completing the AMCAS application, students must agree to not seek admission to other medical schools by checking the Early Assurance box .

The student will then need to change the application type to Regular MD and submit the appropriate fees with the AMCAS application.
Students admitted to the Bac/MD program are not required to provide an MCAT exam score to retain their medical school seat, however, they will need an MCAT score to be considered for scholarships given by the College of Medicine.
