I have heard about direct med programs before but I'm not sure exactly what they are, how to apply, and how they work in general. Does becoming a doctor through a direct med program take less time than going to med school?
Also, what universities are good for direct med? Thank you so much :)
Direct Med Programs are BA/MD or BS/MD Dual degree programs
Expert @YeshDatar wrote a really good series on this exact topic last year.
Some are as short as 6 years others 7 or 8 years. With the exception of Brown and Boston University, most BS/MD programs are not offered at Top Medical schools so if prestige, clout, higher lifetime earnings, and better job placement do not matter to you, then go for it.
