About the Program
The Connections Program, a dual admissions baccalaureate/MD program, allows high school seniors to apply for and be accepted to both the University of Cincinnati undergraduate college and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine simultaneously.
The program attracts highly motivated, intellectually curious, and academically talented students who are serious about a career in medicine. Admitted students enjoy the flexibility that comes with early assurance to a top-ranked medical school, and pursue various majors, co-op opportunities, and study abroad programs.
The Connections program is a non-accelerated, eight-year baccalaureate /MD program. Students spend four years as an undergraduate student at the University of Cincinnati and four years as a medical student at the College of Medicine (the University of Cincinnati College of Engineering joint program is nine years because of the required coop learning program).
Connections students work closely with advisors in the College of Medicine, the undergraduate college’s Pre-Professional Advising Center (PPAC) and the University Honors Program to ensure they not only have a unique and diverse college experience, but that they also meet the requirements of the program and prepare for the challenges of medical school.
To learn more about Connections, please sign up for a Connections Dual Admissions Program Information Session by emailing email@example.com. The information sessions will be held from 4-5PM on: August 15, August 29, September 12, September 26, and October 10. We also recommend attending the Preview UC and College Close-Up prior to the information session.
