Dual Degree Program

The Dual Degree, Bachelor of Medical Sciences / Doctor of Medicine program is designed to meet the needs of our premedical students who do not hold a first degree and wish to earn a baccalaureate degree at GreenHeart Medical University.

The dual degree program is only offered to candidates who enroll in the 5 year MD program at entry level pre-medical program.

Pre-medical students enrolled in the bachelor degree program and continue into the second year of medical sciences may complete the requirements for a bachelor degree in the medical sciences, having successfully completed four (04) semesters of Pre-Medical studies and four (04) semesters of Basic Medical Sciences.

Students who directly enter the second year of premedical sciences (with advanced levels or an international baccalaureate) will be evaluated for transfer credit and may have to complete additional coursework to be eligible for this degree.

Ideally, students enrolled in the BS/MD program covering 04 academic years of education will be able to complete it in 32 calendar months. Students will be required to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and take a comprehensive examination before being awarded the degree Bachelor of Medical Sciences.
