Dual Degree Program with Cooper Medical School of Rowan University

Through a special articulation agreement with the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU), USciences students can receive direct entry into medical school—putting you on the fast track to career success.

As a student in the 4+4 dual degree program, you’ll complete four years at USciences in any major before completing four years at CMSRU—earning both your BS and MD degrees.

Admission to the BS/MD dual degree program is exclusive: Application is by invitation only, and there are only four seats reserved each year for USciences students. If you meet specific requirements,  you'll receive a guaranteed interview with CMSRU.
