Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program

The Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2) is a partnership between the Uniformed Services University and Armed Forces. This 24-month program will enable highly qualified enlisted service members to complete the preparatory coursework for application to medical school while maintaining an active duty status.

Program components includes full-time coursework in a traditional classroom setting (in the Washington, D.C. area), structured pre-health advising, formal Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) preparation, dedicated faculty and peer mentoring at USU, and integrated clinical exposure. Upon completion, the successful student should be a competitive applicant to medical school.

There is a maximum ceiling of 24 months for program completion. Members are not allowed to extend their school past 24 months even if they desire to pay out of pocket. This is a structured, funded program which incurs a three (3) year active duty service commitment (ADSC) according to AFI 36-2107, Active Duty Service Commitments (ADSC), Table 1.2, Rule 13. The EMDP2 Selection Board will consider applicants wishing to start August each year.
