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, e.g. general education and foreign language courses, 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.

Application to the MHP occurs early in the spring semester of the student's second year of college enrollment. Applications for the 2020-2021 year and a position in the College of Medicine's class of 2025 can be found in the Application tab, when available.

Other sections on this website offer details regarding the application process, the requirements, important dates, the MHP curriculum, community, and an FAQ page.

You can remain updated with upcoming events, presentations, or activities by checking this website regularly! Feel free to follow us on Facebook, UF College of Medicine Admissions! @UFCOMAdmissions

Opportunities to shadow a MHP seminar are available. Seating is limited. These opportunities are only available during Fall and Spring semesters. You may contact our student Ambassadors for course shadowing opportunities. 

The Medical Honors Program (formerly Junior Honors Medical Program) has been in place since 1972. To see where some of our former students have gone with their careers, please review our Alumni section.
