Rochester Early Medical Scholars (REMS)

REMS is an eight-year BA/BS-MD program for exceptionally talented undergraduates. Students enrolled in this program enter the University of Rochester with an assurance of admission to the University’s School of Medicine and Dentistry when they successfully complete their undergraduate degree programs, including GPA and premedical requirements. REMS enrollees work closely with faculty mentors and participate in special seminars and events.

Successful REMS candidates possess a demonstrated interest in medicine and have a superior secondary school record, standardized test scores, and recommendations. In addition, REMS applicants must complete the regular undergraduate admission application (or the Common Application and its supplement) and the special Combined-Admission Programs (CAPS) Application by December 1. Information about the REMS program may be obtained by contacting the REMS Program Coordinator in the Office of Admissions.
