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, commitment to serving others 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.

Students are encourged to meet with a pre-health advisor in their freshman year to discuss/plan meeting MHP admission requirements.

Students are encouraged to complete state, university and college requirements by end of summer of sophomore year and before beginning the MHP year.  Physics and Biochemistry may be taken during the MHP year while completing MHP requirements.

Foreign Language proficiency is required for the MHP and CLAS majors.

Application to the MHP occurs early in the spring semester of the student's second year of college enrollment. Applications for the 2019-2020 year and a position in the College of Medicine's class of 2024 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.
