要如何進醫學院-2 BS/MD program

上一篇提到大部分學生進入醫學院的路,進大學、拿必修課、申請醫學院。有另外一條路,比較接近台灣醫學系的概念,讓學生從大學開始,進入一套制定的系統念書,之後“直升”醫學院。這種系統不消說,非常難進。這篇就跟大家分享這條路的資料。在Google打入“BS/MD programs”,就可以看到不少網站專門介紹這種programs。這種學士/博士合併programs,從六年到九年都有,絕大部分是七年跟八年,大學課程念三年,醫學院念四或五年。就我找到的資料看來,錄取率比我想像的要高,大約在10%左右。但是因為申請的人不多,所以看錄取率可能不是最準確的標準。

那要申請會需要什麼資格呢?除了基本的成績(GPA & SAT or ACT)跟校外活動(實習之類的)以外,還會有面試文章(通常是你為什麼要當醫生)、跟推薦信。從高中要申請進的過程,其實跟申請普通大學的過程沒有太大的差別

真正開始有差別的是在進大學之後,並不是直接保送醫學院,還會有第二層的標準要達到,才可以進入醫學院。

譬如說Boston University要求學生需要在Science的課程保持3.2的GPAMCAT則是需要考到80百分比以上 (資料來源)。

Washington University 則是要求3.8GPAMCAT達到97百分比 (資料來源)

Drexel Univeristy 要求數學、生物、化學、物理要有平均3.6的GPA,MCAT要511分 (資料來源)

進入這些program的學生,學校都會特別禮遇,譬如說搭配上專門的輔導幫助選課,或是在校內找研究機會的機率也比較高。但是這種program除非學生很清楚知道自己的未來,心智跟能力也都有一定成熟度,不然會很痛苦。

下一篇要講到,如果大學快要畢業才想要去念醫學院怎麼辦。
