Applications for the 2018-2019 cycle of the Early Medical, Dental, and Optometry Schools Acceptance Programs are not currently available.

The Early Medical School Acceptance Program (EMSAP) is an undergraduate and medical school educational program that provides highly qualified students an enriched undergraduate experience in preparation for medical or dental school. EMSAP provides a path to medical/dental school that offers undergraduate students maximum flexibility in exploring the humanities, neurosciences, social sciences, or any other major.

EMSAP is not an accelerated BS/MD program; it expects students to spend four years at UAB as an undergraduate and an additional four years in medical or dental school. Applicants can only apply for EMSAP as seniors in high school.

After successful completion of program requirements and graduation from an undergraduate program, the program assures highly motivated undergraduates admission to the UAB School of Medicine.

Students applying for EMSAP should note that it is their responsibility to submit all materials by December 15th, including teacher recommendation letters. We suggest that you check, well in advance, with the persons writing your letters to ensure their submission.
