Premedical Scholars Program

The Northwestern Undergraduate Premedical Scholars Program (NUPSP) is an early MD acceptance program for high-achieving Northwestern undergraduate students who have completed two full years of undergraduate study with a demonstrated commitment to a career in medicine who aspire to admission into Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. 

NUPSP is for students who have committed to the Feinberg School of Medicine as their program of choice and requires a binding decision on the part of both the applicant and the medical school.  Students are accepted during their third undergraduate year for matriculation into Feinberg after their fourth (and final) undergraduate year.  The program is not designed to be a fast-track to medical school.  Transfer students may apply if they meet the listed requirements and coursework was conducted at a similarly rigorous program.

Each year, approximately three to six students are offered early acceptance to Feinberg via this program.  The accepted student agrees to enter FSM in August of the calendar year after acceptance and, assuming all program provisions are met, Feinberg agrees to commit a seat to the applicant.

NUPSP is committed to MD applicants only (NUPSP does not accommodate those interested in the MD/PhD program) and does not require program participants to take the MCAT Examination.
