The Junior Honors Medical Program (JHMP) is an accelerated 7 Year B.S./M.D. program offered by the University of Florida. Admission is open to all possible candidates who are United States citizens or permanent residents.

The 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.

The JHMP offers two concentrations:

•           Biomedical science: individuals with a primary focus on pursuing academic careers in medicine

•           Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM):  individuals with a primary focus on careers serving urban, rural and medically underserved populations.

Application to the JHMP occurs early in the spring semester of the student's second year of college enrollment. Applications for the 2015-2016 year and a position in the College of Medicine's class of 2020 can be found in the Application tab.

Other sections on this website offer details of the application process, the requirements, the JHMP curriculum and an FAQ page.
