Pre-Health Profession Options
Students interested in pursuing a health science professional degree such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physician assistant, chiropractic etc. have many program options at SUNY Poly that will help them meet the necessary admission requirements for advanced study. These programs provide faculty advisors who can guide students through the process of exploring pre-health career options, taking the right courses at Poly, and applying for advanced study upon completion of their bachelor’s degree. They include:
Upstate Accelerated Scholars Program (early medical school admission 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, and be guaranteed 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.
