MEDICAL STUDENT
Preparing for the Medical College Admissions Test and applying to medical school can consume considerable time, energy and resources in an undergraduate’s life. To free that time so that students can take advantage of unique enrichment opportunities presented during their junior and senior years, AMC created an Early Assurance Program which is available as an option at selected undergraduate schools.

Through the Early Assurance Program, students apply to AMC at the end of their sophomore year and are assured of admission two years later, provided their conduct is fitting of a future physician and they meet the academic standards of the program. The MCAT is waived for program participants.

At the time of application, qualified students must have completed two of the four one-year science courses required by AMC: general biology, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, and general physics. Applicants are expected to have a strong undergraduate record, including an overall and science grade point average of 3.40 or better, as well as meaningful community service and/or experience in a health care setting.

As part of the application process, applicants are expected to articulate, in writing, their goals and objectives for their last two undergraduate years. They are also expected to express how they will use the time they save—by not having to apply to multiple medical schools and prepare for the MCAT—to engage in an in depth project which will ultimately enhance their abilities as physicians.

The Early Assurance Program offers a unique opportunity for students who are highly motivated, mature, and focused. If you are confident of your interest in pursuing a career in medicine and that Albany Medical College is the school you would choose to attain that goal, the Early Assurance Program can be an excellent choice.
