2 out of 12 New UCSD Medical Scholars are Elite Alumni
For the second year in a row, two of the twelve students accepted to the highly selective UCSD Medical Scholars Program are Elite students!
Each year, UC San Diego invites 500 of the most highly qualified applicants from their regular admission pool to apply to the UCSD Medical Scholars Program. Students cannot choose to apply to this program but must be invited. From this pool of 500 applicants, no more than 12 students are accepted each year.
If accepted, students are guaranteed admission into the undergraduate program of their choice and provisional admission to the UCSD School of Medicine without having to take the MCAT. This makes the UCSD Medical Scholars Program one of the most competitive and highly selective Bachelor/M.D. programs in the world.
