ROSE Program Components
ROSE Program Research Labs
The research labs that are available to students each year can vary; however, the research available to students includes basic/bench, translational, and clinical. Some of the research departments that were available to students in 2016 were: Pediatric Oncology, Surgery, Dermatology, Pulmonary, Psychiatry, and Family & Community Medicine.
Early Acceptance to UC College of Medicine
ROSE students are provided an early assurance acceptance to the College of Medicine, contingent on meeting academic and MCAT requirements as undergraduates after they enter ROSE.
ROSE Program Requirements of Admitted Students:
1) Earn a minimum AMCAS- calculated 3.50 cumulative GPA and a 3.50 BCPM GPA (Biology,
Chemistry, Physics, and Math).
2) Earn a minimum score requirement on a single MCAT administration (no super-scoring); with a
limit of 2 MCAT administrations that will be averaged to determine if the minimum required
score has been met.
3) All ROSE students are expected to conduct themselves professionally. If concerns should arise
at any time regarding a student’s academic performance or personal/professional development,
the student may be reviewed by the committee resulting in action up to and including dismissal
from the program.
*Throughout a student's time in ROSE, every attempt will be made to provide opportunities in areas where interest is expressed.
ROSE Program Summer Housing
Housing is available to ROSE students over the summer on UC's undergraduate campus, which is just a 5 minute shuttle ride away from medical campus.
Each year the ROSE Program offers 1-2 Research Advocacy Scholarships to ROSE students who are not from the immediate area to assist them with the majority of their housing costs for the summer. Students who are accepted to the ROSE Program will be sent information on how to apply for the Research Advocacy Scholarship.
