Sure, I can provide you with a list of some of the best integrated medical programs in the U.S. These programs allow you to complete a bachelor's and MD in a shorter time period (usually around 6-8 years) while also providing a significant degree of academic rigor and integration with medical studies. Here are a few programs you might want to consider:

1. Brown University — Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME): This program offers an 8-year combined degree where students complete a BA/BS and MD. It has a unique, holistic approach to medical education and provides its students with a broader understanding of medical issues.

2. Northwestern University — Honors Program in Medical Education (HPME): This is a 7-year combined degree program with a focus on interdisciplinary learning. Students spend their first three years completing undergraduate studies in any major they choose and then transition to medical school at the Feinberg School of Medicine.

3. Rice University/Baylor College of Medicine — Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program: This 8-year program allows students to complete undergraduate studies at Rice University and then continue on to the Baylor College of Medicine for their MD. This program emphasizes research and innovation in the field of medicine.

4. Boston University — Seven-Year Combined Liberal Arts/Medical Degree Program (also known as MOD): This program allows undergraduate students to complete their BA/BS in three years, followed by four years of medical school at the Boston University School of Medicine. It has a strong emphasis on academic and clinical excellence in medicine.

5. University of Miami — Medical Scholars Program: This is another 7-year program that combines undergraduate and medical studies. Students complete their undergraduate degree in a major of their choice in three years, followed by four years at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine.

6. Penn State/Jefferson — Accelerated Premedical-Medical Program (also known as Sidney Kimmel Medical College Program): This 6-year program allows students to complete their undergraduate degree at Penn State in two years, followed by four years at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University.
