Direct Medical Programs (BS/MD)

At Moon Prep, our counselors have extensive experience working with students applying to highly competitive direct medical programs. Each year, every single counselor on the team works with direct medical students. We coach talented and exemplary students who are passionate about medicine and help them gain a spot into elite direct medical programs, including BS/MD, BS/DO, BS/DMD, and BS/DDS. 

Competitive direct medical program applications are built over years, not days or months. Admission rates can be very low for these types of programs, so we work consistently with the students to give them the best opportunities possible. We guide students to build up their resume throughout high school, gain meaningful clinical and research experience, and maximize their academic potential. 

​This process can be stressful for both parents and students, so Moon Prep is here to serve as your partner. Direct medical students often apply to 20 or more schools, and our counselors keep you on track and ahead of deadlines. We guide you through each step of the process to help make this journey a success. 

Experienced Moon Prep counselors help you:

  • ​Secure internship or volunteer positions with a medical focus
  • Recommend science-based extracurricular activities
  • Seek out research opportunities
  • Present your research at science fairs
  • Prep for the MMI interview format – a unique part of the BS/MD process
  • Build your resume, with an emphasis on developing your healthcare-related experiences
  • Strengthen your academic profile

U.S.-based medical schools are some of the most competitive in the world. A strong GPA and MCAT score, hundreds of volunteering and shadowing hours, extracurricular activities, and excellent letters of recommendation are sometimes not enough. To get into a top med school, you will need to craft a compelling personal statement and ace the interview. Moon Prep is there with you every step of the way. 

At Moon Prep, we have substantial experience in the applications to both allopathic and osteopathic med schools. We have written extensively on the subject and even interviewed the deans of prestigious medical schools and the president of AACOM (American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine) for our articles.
