Earn your B.S. and M.D. in only seven years.

In 1964, Rensselaer and the Albany Medical College (AMC) were pioneers in initiating an accelerated degree program that enabled qualified individuals to complete requirements for both the B.S. and M.D. degrees in an accelerated time frame. Now, many years and hundreds of graduates later, we are expanding on our innovative approach and are offering a program that will graduate physicians who are intensively trained in medical research. Qualified applicants who are accepted in the Rensselaer-Albany Medical College seven-year program will benefit from a unique science-based program built upon the rich tradition of Rensselaer's many years of technological innovation, as well as Albany Medical College's similar tradition of leadership in health-care research.
