The Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate is a premium program offered to enlisted members of the U.S. military who are chosen specifically from a federal program referred to as EMDP2 (Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program). This is a post-baccalaureate program aimed at active duty military enlisted members who have earned a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, who have experience working in a health-related position in the military, and who meet all other requirements specified by the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU), and who are interested in matriculating at the Uniformed Services University (military medical school) or another US accredited medical school. Only those individuals who are supported by EMDP2 are eligible to enroll in the Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate.

The Pre-Medical Undergraduate Certificate will provide a one-year undergraduate program that will allow qualified individuals to complete undergraduate pre-medical admissions requirements as currently specified by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC).

This is a full-time program offered during the day and located at the Science and Technology Campus of George Mason University. Students are selected by the US military and are admitted as a cohort in the fall semester only.


University-wide admissions policies can be found in the Undergraduate Admissions Policies section of this catalog.

Applicants must be active duty military and selected by the EMDP2. Students are expected to have a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university and the desire to pursue a career in military medicine.

Applicants who do not meet the admissions requirements for this certificate may be interested in learning about the Career Changer's Biological Sciences Undergraduate Certificate.
