Baccalaureate 2 MD Pathway Program (Bacc2MD)

This is a special admissions pathway into the University of Toledo's College of Medicine for students pursing a major from one of these three colleges: The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, the College Arts and Letters, the College of Engineering's Department of Bioengineering. This program is a sequential degree program: students first complete the undergraduate major followed by the M.D. at UT's College of Medicine.  Bacc2MD Pathway students are provided a mentoring program through the College of Medicine's Admissions Office during their undergraduate studies.  Bacc2MD students are guaranteed an interview with the College of Medicine’s Admissions Committee if they have participated in special mentoring activities, maintained a cumulative college GPA of at least 3.5, and have been involved in extra-curricular activities demonstrating a sincere interest in a medical career as well as demonstrating a compassionate and caring attitude.  The interview will occur in the fall of the 3rd year of undergraduate studies (4th year for BIOE students).
