The combined Engineering/MD 7-year program is a joint undergraduate-medical program in which a student spends three years at TCNJ in engineering and four years at the New Jersey Medical School (NJMS). Upon successful completion of the first year of medical school, the student is granted either a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Science or a Bachelor of Arts in Biomedical Engineering from TCNJ. The M.D. degree is earned at the end of four years at NJMS.
To be considered for the combined Engineering/MD 7-year program, the candidates must have earned a minimum SAT score of 1480 or better (from a single test), and must be in the top 5% of their class, and/or have an unweighted G.P.A. of 4.5 or 95% depending on how the school evaluates achievement. Students entering this program must also hold advanced placement credit for Calculus A and Calculus B, or General Physics I and II. Two interviews are required as part of the admissions process.
Students that enroll in the Biomedical Engineering BS/MD, or the Engineering Science/MD combined 7-year program will have the opportunity to follow one of two curricula options: electrical engineering or mechanical engineering. To view sample curricula click one of the four options below:
