The Junior Honors Medical Program (JHMP) is a combined (seven year) baccalaureate/M.D. program offered by the University of Florida. Admission is open to all possible candidates who are United States citizens or permanent residents. This program is intended for undergraduate students who have demonstrated superior scholastic ability and personal development during their first two academic years of enrollment at a 4-year accredited science degree granting institution, and who are dedicated to pursuing medicine as a career. When accepted to this program, a student secures a place in medical school at the University of Florida, College of Medicine as long as the JHMP requirements are completed and academic standards are maintained.
Application to the JHMP is done early in the spring semester of the student's second year of college enrollment. Applications for the 2013-2012 year and a position in the College of Medicine's class of 2018 will be available on this site on January 17, 2013.
Application to the JHMP is made during the spring of the student's second year of college enrollment.
Other sections on this website contain details of the application process, the requirements, the JHMP curriculum and an FAQ page. In addition, we have a video of JHMP Director Dr. Colin Sumners giving an explanation of the program and going into depth about the finer aspects of the JHMP - who can apply, who should apply, and what is expected of those that are accepted: Junior Honors Video
