Hello! It's excellent that you're considering 7-year medical programs as a way to accelerate your studies and enter the medical field. These combined BS/MD or BA/MD programs offer a more streamlined path to a medical degree, saving you time and potentially reducing the stress associated with the medical school application process.

Here are some notable schools offering strong combined medical programs:

1. Brown University - Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME)

2. Northwestern University - Honors Program in Medical Education (HPME)

3. Rice University/Baylor College of Medicine - Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program

4. Boston University - Seven-Year Liberal Arts/Medical Education Program

5. Penn State/Jefferson - Premedical-Medical (PMM) Program

6. University of Miami - Medical Honors Program (MHP)

7. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute/Albany Medical College - Physician-Scientist Program (PSP)

8. Union College/Albany Medical College - Leadership in Medicine Program

9. California Northstate University - BS-MD Combined Degree Program

10. University of Nevada, Reno - BS-MD Program

Each of these programs has specific requirements, benefits, and structures, so it's crucial to research each one and determine which would be a good fit for you. Some programs may require a certain GPA, standardized test scores, and extracurricular involvement, while others might emphasize research, leadership, or community service.

If none of these options stand out to you, you can find a more comprehensive list on CollegeVine's blog: https://blog.collegevine.com/a-complete-list-of-all-bs-md-programs. While a certain program may not be as highly ranked in general, it's possible that it's stronger in your particular area of interest, or that the school's location or a certain faculty member makes it a great match.

Overall, as you research programs, consider your career goals, preferred learning environment, and the undergraduate school's course offerings and extracurricular opportunities. This will ensure you find a program that aligns with your aspirations and sets you up for success in your eventual medical career.

Best of luck with your research and future applications!
