7 Year Medical Program

New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) and TCNJ have a formal articulation agreement allowing incoming freshman applicants to be accepted to both the medical school and TCNJ and to earn both the baccalaureate from TCNJ and the MD degree from NJMS in seven years.

Students enrolled in this program spend three years at TCNJ in an approved major (Biology, Chemistry, English, Philosophy, Physics, Economics, Biomedical Engineering, Engineering Science (mechanical or electrical emphasis), Math or History) and four at NJMS.  Engineering majors require earned college credit (by qualifying AP test scores or completing college courses) in: General Physics I and II, Calculus I and II.  Upon successful completion of the first year of medical school, the student is granted the BS or BA degree in the chosen undergraduate major from TCNJ. The M.D. degree is then earned at the end of four years at NJMS.
