The six-year program at EuroMed Institute is designed for graduating high school seniors or community/junior college students who exhibit academic excellence and a desire to become a physician. Additionally, students who do not have a pre-med background and do not have an MCAT score should consider this program.
Our six-year program is similar to the combined B.S./ M.D. programs offered in the United States.
During the first two years of the program, a student must meet all general curriculum requirements and complete all required pre-med courses. In the third year, students begin formal medical education, which is similar to the first year of U.S. medical school.
During this time you will prepare for the first of your licensing exams, which you must pass prior to your fourth and fifth years of medical school.
After you complete your fourth year of education, you must take Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination – USMLE (see Clinical Education link for details).
Once you have passed Step 1 of the USMLE, you will still be enrolled in classes, but also begin rotations in hospitals and clinics. Fifth-year students rotate through a series of core medical specialties. During your six-year, you will be able to choose elective rotations in the areas that interest you most. By the end of your six-year, both components of Step 2 of the USMLE must be completed.
Completion of all steps of the USMLE will also be required.
In addition to the general curriculum, we also offer country-specific language and cultural immersion courses.
