CMED Honors Early Assurance Program

CMED Honors is an early assurance program for select undergraduate members of the Central Michigan University Honors program.

CMED Honors students will be selected from the honors program as freshmen in their first semester at Central Michigan University. After experiencing the clinical, classroom and community events and working with a mentor from the medical school, up to five participants will be offered an early assurance of admission to the College of Medicine before the start of their senior year.

CMED Honors students must take the Medical College Admissions Test no later than May of their junior year to be considered for the five slots. All program participants must complete a College of Medicine application and participate in the College of Medicine multiple mini interviews.

Students not selected can still apply through the regular American Medical College Application Service process.
