The Medical Honors Program (MHP), formerly Junior Honors Medical Program (JHMP), is an accelerated 7 Year B.S./M.D. program offered by the University of Florida. Admission is open to all possible candidates who are United States citizens or permanent residents.

The program is intended for undergraduate students who have demonstrated superior scholastic ability and personal development during their first two academic years of enrollment at a 4 year accredited science degree granting institution, and who are dedicated to pursuing medicine as a career. When accepted to this program, a student secures a place in medical school at the University of Florida College of Medicine as long as the MHP requirements are completed and academic standards are maintained.

The MHP offers two concentrations:

•           Biomedical science: individuals with a primary focus on pursuing academic careers in medicine

•           Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM):  individuals with a primary focus on careers serving urban, rural and medically underserved populations.

Application to the MHP occurs early in the spring semester of the student's second year of college enrollment. Applications for the 2016-2017 year and a position in the College of Medicine's class of 2021 can be found in the Application tab.

Other sections on this website offer details of the application process, the requirements, the MHP curriculum and an FAQ page.

You can remain updated with upcoming events, presentations, or activities by subscribing to our listserv! To join, simply send an email to and leave the subject line blank. In the body of the email, write: subscribe JHMP-L firstname lastname and then send it. You will receive an email response asking for a quick confirmation.

Opportunities to shadow a MHP seminar are available. Seating is limited. These opportunities are only available during Fall and Spring semester.

The Medical Honors Program, formerly Junior Honors Medical Program, has been in place since 1972. To see where some of the former students have gone with their careers, please read through our Former Students section.
