Early Admissions Programs at the UC College of Medicine
The UC College of Medicine offers the following certificate program:
Connections Dual Admissions Program
The Connections Program, a dual admissions eight-year 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. 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. Students spend four years as an undergraduate student at UC and four years as a medical student at the College of Medicine.
The ROSE program is part internship, part early acceptance to medical school, and part mentorship program. The purpose of the program is to provide stimulating experiences and contact with academic medical faculty for high ability, intellectually curious pre-medical college students. It’s called ROSE because students learn about medicine by actively participating in Research, Observation, Service, and Education experiences coordinated by the UC College of Medicine. Ideally, all four sets of experiences will have a common thread and students become “junior experts” on a specific medical topic.
