Early Medical School Acceptance Program

You’ve dreamed of saving lives, or smiles, or sight, and you’re willing to work hard to make that dream come true.

We like that about you. And we want to reward that hard work with a guarantee: If you complete all the requirements of the Early Medical School Acceptance Program (EMSAP—what a mouthful), you’ll have a spot in the UAB School of Medicine, School of Dentistry, or School of Optometry, just as soon as you earn your bachelor’s degree.

As an EMSAP student, you will experience hands-on work in health-care settings with health-care professionals early on, one-on-one contact with scholars and clinicians, and special seminars and shadowing opportunities designed specifically to give you the knowledge and experience you’ll need in your professional studies and your medical career. You might even be eligible for a summer research stipend. (Seriously, we like rewarding determination and discipline.) And of course when it’s all over, you won’t have to worry about getting into a medical school—you’ll be there.

Application Deadline: December 15

Please note: You must be admitted to UAB as a first-time freshman no later than December 1, 2014 in order to apply for EMSAP.
