Policy for students getting a second degree

All students who interrupt medical school to obtain a second degree prior to the start of the 3rd year are required to complete all the requirements for the first 2 years of medical school and pass the USMLE Step 1 prior to starting their second degree coursework.

When returning to medical school, all students enrolled in a second degree are required to complete their second degree coursework and be in “filed to graduate status” (for their second degree) prior to enrolling in either the required 3rd year clinical courses or 4th year courses (except for 4th year clinical didactic experiences), for medical school. Exceptions to this must be approved by the CSP.
