MHP Program Overview

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 and who have not previously earned a bachelor’s degree or higher.

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. Competitive candidates demonstrate dedication to pursuing medicine as a career and potential for distinction in leadership and research. When accepted to this program, a student reserves admission into our medical school at the University of Florida College of Medicine contingent upon satisfactory completion of the junior year (third year) curriculum  and maintenance of high academic standards.

  • Students are encouraged 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 2023-2024 year and a position in the College of Medicine’s class of 2029 can be found in the Application tab, when available.
