Upstate Accelerated Scholars Program
High school seniors interested in pursuing an M.D. at SUNY Upstate Medical University (SUNY Upstate) after earning a baccalaureate diploma at SUNY Poly may simultaneously be accepted to both as part of Upstate’s Accelerated Scholars Program.
The agreement allows up to five interested and qualified high school students to enroll in any baccalaureate program at SUNY Poly, starting fall 2020, and it guarantees acceptance into SUNY Upstate’s College of Medicine upon completion of their undergraduate degree. Accepted students would not be required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and would be automatically enrolled in Upstate’s Doctor of Allopathic Medicine program.
Additional Pre-Health Options
Students interested in pursuing a health science professional degree (medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, etc.) have many program options at SUNY Poly that will help them meet necessary admission requirements, including biology, community and behavioral health, interdisciplinary studies, nanoscale science, and psychology. We encourage you to reach out to the admission office to discuss your options at 315-792-7500 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
