Sam Houston State University (SHSU) in cooperation with the Universidad Autonóma de Guadalajara School of Medicine (UAG) allows students to apply credits earned during medical school to undergraduate college requirements and save a year’s work while earning both a bachelor’s degree and the medical degree (M.D.).
Candidate students must complete a special three-year of undergraduate pre-medical curriculum establishing a minimum 3.3 GPA and an acceptable MCAT score.
Successful students will, at the end of their third year of undergraduate study, be accepted to the UAG Medical School. As the student completes required medical school courses, credit for designated courses will be applied to their SHSU undergraduate degree requirements. The bachelor’s degree is awarded when the student has satisfactorily completed the first year of medical studies.
