The FlexMed Early Acceptance Program at Mount Sinai, Icahn School of Medicine, has combined and expand its well-known Humanities and Medicine Program and the more newly established Science and Medicine Program into one program – FlexMed Early Acceptance Program at Mount Sinai.
FlexMed Early Acceptance Program at Mount Sinai
This program, launched in the fall of 2013, allows college sophomores majoring in any discipline early acceptance to the medical school. FlexMed students are not required to take the MCAT and enjoy more academic freedom to pursue their undergraduate interests. Mount Sinai writes that FlexMed students will represent half of every incoming medical school class.
From the Mount Sinai website:
“Named to honor the legacy of Abraham Flexner, a pioneer educator who revolutionized medical education early in the 20th century, FlexMed is transforming medical education by cultivating physicians who are grounded in 21st century science and the social context in which they will practice medicine.”
