Dual Degree Programs
BS/MD Program at the City College/Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education
This accelerated program allows students to earn both the Bachelor of Science degree and the MD degree in seven years, instead of the customary eight. The program's objective is to train primary care physicians for medically under-served, inner-city communities. Sponsored by the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, the program begins with a three-year undergraduate component leading to the BS degree (awarded by The City College); continues with two years of medical courses administered by the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education; and concludes with a two-year clinical program at a participating medical school outside the CUNY system. Upon successful completion of the clinical segment of the program, the student is awarded an MD degree by the participating medical school. Students must pass Part I of the National Board Medical Examination before they will be accepted into the final two-year clinical program.
Articulated BA/MD Program at Brooklyn College
This special program is offered in conjunction with the College of Medicine of the State University of New York (SUNY) Health Science Center at Brooklyn. The first three or four years of study, which include core curriculum requirements, major requirements, and science courses, are taken at Brooklyn College. The remaining four years may be taken at SUNY/Brooklyn Medical School. For more information, please visit the Brooklyn College BA/MD Program information webpage.
Joint JD/MBA Degree Program at Baruch College
The joint JD/MBA program with Brooklyn Law School and New York Law School allows students to pursue both law and business subjects more rigorously than either the MBA or the JD degrees alone would allow. This more thorough study of the connections between law and business enables joint degree students to make a special contribution to the law or business environment in which they will be working.
