2011-2012 Connections Application Requirements!
Connections is the dual admissions program sponsored by the University of Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. It is sometimes referred to as a BS/MD program.
This opportunity allows highly motivated high school students to reserve a place in our medical school for the year that they graduate from UC. Students complete their bachelor's degree at UC before beginning the M.D. program at the College of Medicine. Students accepted into Connections will be guided through a pre-medical curriculum and encouraged to take advantage of clinical and research opportunities. Additionally, Connections students are admitted into the University Honors Program.
To transition to the College of Medicine, Connections students will earn a 3.4+ overall GPA; a 3.45+ math/science GPA; and a 30 + score (no less than a 9 in any section) on the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test). Additionally, they will graduate from the University Honors Program.
