For high school students planning to go into medicine, the most guaranteed route is through a BS/MD, or direct medical program. BS/MD programs allow for a smooth transition from undergraduate learning straight into medical school, guaranteeing their admission to medical school.

The potential to skip the MCAT draws many students to apply to BS/MD programs. For the full list of direct medical programs that don’t require the MCAT, read our article on Forbes.
