USUHS Program Description

The Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2) program is a two-year, full-time education program for enlisted members of the military. It is intended for motivated service members who show academic promise and whose experiences and goals align with the mission of their military services and the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine. Selectees are assigned to USU (requires a permanent change of station to Bethesda, MD) and placed in a supportive academic setting for a two-year period.

EMDP2 includes premedical coursework, Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) preparation, clinical experience, mentoring, and pre-health advising. George Mason University provides the coursework, MCAT preparation courses, and pre-health advising on a contract basis. These services are provided at Mason’s Science and Technology Campus (Manassas) in an exclusive cohort structure. USU coordinates the remaining elements, including the clinical component, which is completed at Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and Malcolm Grow Medical Center at Andrews Air Force Base. Read more

The Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate is a premium program offered to enlisted members of the U.S. military who are chosen specifically from a federal program referred to as EMDP2 (Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program). This is a post-baccalaureate program aimed at active duty military enlisted members who have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, who have experience working in a health-related position in the military, and who meet all other requirements specified by the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU), and who are interested in matriculating at the Uniformed Services University (military medical school) or another US accredited medical school. Only those individuals who are supported by EMDP2 are eligible to enroll in the Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate.

The Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate will provide a one-year undergraduate program that will allow qualified individuals to complete undergraduate pre-medical admissions requirements as currently specified by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC).

This is a full-time program offered during the day and located at the Science and Technology Campus of George Mason University. Students are selected by the US military and are admitted as a cohort in the fall semester only.
