We have been receiving increased number of phone calls and emails from international anxious students and their parents regarding the combined BS/MD programs that will consider them.
For international students it allows matriculation in both an undergraduate and graduate school and increases the opportunity for medical residency in the U.S. which is in and of it self extremely competitive. International as well as US. applicants to these programs prefer high-paying specialties: cardiology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery cardio-thoracic surgery, urology, plastic surgery and otolaryngology.
“International student view BS/MD programs as a way not only to achieve their career goals, but also to become U.S. doctors and practice medicine the U.S. It’s a career, financial and citizenship triple-play and we help them achieve all three simultaneously.” – Dr. Paul Lowe CEO/founder of Pinnacle Educational Center Admissions Advisors Group and managing director of BS/MD Admissions Advisors.
“As a result of our success with international students, we are seeing even more interest in our BS/MD services by U.S. high school students and their parents”, said Dr. Nadine Cartwright-Lowe, co-managing director, BS/MD Admissions Advisors and a 1985 graduate of Brown PLME. “We place more students in Brown’s PLME program because it’s the only BS/MD that is an Ivy League and favorably considers international students.
What are the top and therefore most competitive BS/MD Programs for international students:
- Brown University Program in Liberal Medical Education (PLME)
- Northwestern University Honor Program In Medical Education (HPME)
- Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program (MSP)
- Washington University in St. Louis University Scholars Program in Medicine.
When it comes to BS/MD programs, having a high GPA, a top SAT score, science research, shadowing doctors or volunteering to help the disadvantaged isn’t enough. You need a college -BS/MD application with a “WOW FACTOR” if you want to stand out.
College and BS/MD admissions officers read thousands of applications for eight to ten hours a day. After a while, many applications start to look alike. You have to come alive in the application if you want to be noticed. This means telling a riveting and cohesive story that shows you’re a real person, rather than a few sheets of paper that make you sound just like every other high achieving student with top grades, test scores; performs research, shadows doctors and helps the disadvantaged.
BS/MD Admissions Advisors offers access to a unique methodology for creating standout applications for international students applying to BS/MD programs.
