The BA/BS-MD degree program is a partnership between University of Colorado Denver's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the School of Medicine. The purpose of the program is to assemble 8-10 outstanding students from broadly diverse backgrounds who are committed to serving the health care needs of Colorado. Being accepted to the program enables students to have a reserved seat in a top-ranked medical school where they will have the freedom to explore other interests during their exciting college years at UC Denver.
Admission of individuals will be conducted through a holistic review to select those academically qualified individuals from a broad range of backgrounds who show a strong commitment to a career in medicine.

What Students are Saying
Zane Sternberg, La Veta
2010-2011 BA/BS-MD Cohort 1
"I have lived on a small ranch, outside the rural town of La Veta, for my entire life. Many people have asked me whether or not I was ready to 'narrow down' my choices so early in life. But when I think of going into medicine, I feel as though more doors are being opened than closed; it is such a diverse field. I could teach, volunteer (e.g., Doctors Without Borders), work in a large hospital, or even practice in a small town—like my parents."
Tamara Lhungay, Longmont
2010-2011 BA/BS-MD Cohort 1
"I love helping people, love interacting with people, love biology—this was a perfect fit. The program allows me to enjoy college, but I still get to achieve my goal of becoming a doctor."
