The academic requirements for admission to the MD/PhD Program are high and include:
MD/PhD students are selected from a pool of applicants directly to the MD/PhD Program, all of whom must submit a separate application for admission to the MD Program. Close coordination and cooperation exist between the Medical School Admissions Committee and the MD/PhD Program Committee, which also serves as the Admissions Committee for the MD/PhD Program. In addition, students may be recruited from the freshmanTemple University Medical School class.
The criteria for admission for the MD/PhD applicants from the general applicant pool are based upon those currently in use for regular admission to the MD Program. Overall GPA and MCAT scores should be significantly higher than normally required for Temple University Medical School admission. The applicant's academic background must demonstrate exceptional research or scholarly interest and experience.
