Admissions2-12ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS

Students enrolled in our MD program will take part in two years of basic science coursework, followed by two years of clinical training that will prepare them to enter into a residency program in the U.S.

All applicants applying for the 4-Year MD Program are required to have completed at least two years of undergraduate studies & 90 total credit hours.  We are looking for a cumulative GPA of 3.0, including the following subjects:

  • (8 hours) of Inorganic or General Chemistry (with labs)
  • (8 hours) of Organic Chemistry (with labs)
  • (8 hours) of General Biology (with labs)
  • (8 hours) of Physics (with labs)
  • (3 hours) of English
  • (3 hours) of Pre-Calculus/Calculus or Statistics
  • (3 hours) of Behavioral or Social Science

*Additional coursework in biology and other related disciplines is highly recommended.

In addition to our 4-Year MD Program, we also offer a 5 ½ Year Pre-Med / MD Program.  This program is designed for high school graduates, as a precursor to our medical program.  Motivated students can come to XUSOM without first obtaining a bachelor’s degree.  If they perform well, they will be granted automatic admission into the MD portion of the program.  The pre-medical curriculum is consistent with XUSOM’s integrated medical curriculum, and will ease the transition into basic science.  It presents fundamental scientific concepts from a medical perspective, and incorporates USMLE Step 1 familiarization from the first day of classes. 

All applicants applying for the 5 ½ Year Pre-Med / MD Program are required to have completed high school, or an equivalency program.
