Your Career in Healthcare Starts Here

MD-PhD Rutgers NJ Medical School

The Albert Dorman Honors College considers for admission students who have strong academic records - minimum SAT-Composite Score (CR+Math) of 1350 or ACT of 30, B+ average, history of leadership and service to the community.  Exceptionally qualified candidates may apply to an accelerated program of their choice at the same time as they apply to NJIT and the Honors College through the Common Application.

NJIT offers two paths to healthcare graduate school

Standard path – Students complete their undergraduate career at NJIT and then apply to medical school or

Accelerated path – Students are pre-admitted to complete their undergraduate degree at NJIT and then continue on to medical school.

Students may pursue a BS or BA in any major at NJIT. Biology, Biomedical Engineering, BioChemistry, BioPhysics, Mathematics, Science Technology & Society (STS) are preferred majors for pre-health students. Those who choose a major without an accelerated curriculum may choose to self-accelerate and may need to take extra courses to prepare for professional admissions tests.

All programs require that students rank in the top 10% of their class.
