Joint and Early Selection Programs in Medicine

EASTERN VIRGINIA MEDICAL SCHOOL JOINT PROGRAM (BS/MD)
Through an agreement with Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS), outstanding premedical students may gain assurance early in their college careers of admission into medical school. Each year the EVMS Admissions Committee, in consultation with Hampden-Sydney's Health Sciences Committee, selects a small number of rising sophomores for a program that assures participants admission to EVMS upon satisfactory completion of their undergraduate studies at Hampden- Sydney. The program also encourages selected students to choose from among the wide variety of courses in the liberal arts and sciences offered at Hampden-Sydney and relieves them of the stress associated with application to medical school.  Additionally, EVMS waives the MCAT exam for students accepted through the early assurance program. Although these students are assured of admission, they are not obligated to attend EVMS upon graduation from Hampden-Sydney. For more information concerning this program, interested students should contact the Chair of the Health Sciences Committee early in their freshman year.

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE EARLY SELECTION PROGRAM
Through an agreement with The George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, outstanding premedical students may be selected at the end of their sophomore year to enter the medical school at The George Washington University once they have completed the requirements for graduation from Hampden-Sydney College. The early selection process allows these highly qualified premedical students greater flexibility in course selection as they complete the baccalaureate degree. Additionally, GWU waives the MCAT exam for students accepted through the early assurance program. Acceptance of any offer into this program is binding, and it is expected that students will matriculate at GWU the fall semester following graduation. For more information concerning this program, interested students should contact the Chair of the Health Sciences Committee early in their freshman year.

THE VIRGINIA COMMONWEALTH UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE EARLY SELECTION PROGRAM
Through an agreement with Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, two outstanding premedical students may be selected at the end of their sophomore year to enter the medical school at Virginia Commonwealth University once they have completed the requirements for graduation from Hampden-Sydney College. The program also encourages selected students to choose from among the wide variety of courses in the liberal arts and sciences offered at Hampden-Sydney and relieves them of the stress associated with application to medical school. Although these students are assured of admission, they are not obligated to attend VCU upon graduation from Hampden-Sydney. Admission to VCU Medical School is contingent on the student's receiving the national average score on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). For more information concerning this program, interested students should contact the Chair of the Health Sciences Committee early in their freshman year.
