About the Program
The Connections Dual Admissions Program (DAP), a dual admissions BS/MD program, allows high school seniors to apply to 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, biomedical research opportunities, medical shadowing experiences, co-op opportunities, study abroad programs, and service experiences within the greater Cincinnati area. Students admitted to the Connections Dual Admissions Program are also granted acceptance into the University of Cincinnati’s Undergraduate Program in Biomedical Sciences & Medicine, which is an innovative pathway based in the College of Medicine providing students with integrated academic, experiential, and mentored opportunities that will prepare them for advanced training in medicine and molecular and biomedical sciences.
The Connections Dual Admissions 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 co-op learning program).
Connections Dual Admissions 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.
