When do med schools usually start?

I'm trying to plan out my future after high school and I'm considering pursuing medicine. What month do med schools typically begin their academic year? Thanks in advance!

6 months ago

Med schools in the United States typically begin their academic year around August or September. However, exact start dates can vary depending on the specific medical school. It's important to check the calendar of each med school you're interested in for their precise start dates, as well as any orientation events for incoming students that might take place before classes officially start.

Good luck on your journey to med school, and feel free to ask any more questions as they arise!
