​Medical education at AUB follows the American model of medical education.  Students are admitted to medical school after obtaining a bachelor degree.  This could be in any field, but students are required to take specific core courses in biology, chemistry, physics, humanities, social sciences and English language, as prerequisite courses.  The Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)  is also required for admission.  Admission is competitive and based on academic achievement in the undergraduate years, the MCAT scores and the results of an interview process.


    Application submission deadline is January 15 and the preliminary acceptance to the Faculty of Medicine will be issued by mid-April and will be conditional upon completion of the BS, MS, BA, or MA degrees.
