MEDICAL STUDENT - BOARD MEETING
The Union College/Graduate College of Union University/Albany Medical College Leadership in Medicine program was created for students who see themselves as leaders helping to meet and solve the medical, ethical, and health care issues of the 21st century.

This unique program focuses on three key areas that today’s physicians must be prepared to address: the economic and financial problems facing medicine, including health policy and health management; the increasing complexity of biomedical ethics; and the need to maintain a global perspective.

Students who complete the eight-year Leadership in Medicine program will find it both challenging and stimulating. They will graduate with three degrees, a Bachelor of Science in biology or chemistry with a second major in the humanities or a social science; a Master of Science in Clinical Leadership in Health Management or Master of Business Administration in Health Systems Administration, and a Doctor of Medicine. The curriculum also includes courses in bioethics, two health services practicums (one while at Union College and the other while at Albany Medical College), and a term abroad or other international experience.

Selection for the Union/GCUU/AMC program takes place during the senior year of high school. Applicants must have completed challenging coursework in high school, including biology, chemistry, and physics. Students selected for this program possess the passion for medicine, proven academic histories of excellence and impressive SAT scores. In addition to the SAT I, students must also take SAT II examinations in math and science. ACT scores may be submitted in lieu of the SAT.

A high priority is also placed on personal qualities such as motivation, maturity, and personal development. Additionally, volunteer service and clinical experience are valued components of the successful candidate’s portfolio. Once accepted, students must maintain the academic standards of the program but they are excused from taking the Medical College Admission Test.

If you have the will, the courage and the commitment to confront the exciting but difficult challenges facing the future of healthcare, the Union College/Graduate College of Union University/Albany Medical College Leadership in Medicine program may be exactly what you are looking for.
