This program seeks high school students with excellent academic records. Preference will be given to those applicants which best fulfill the following criteria:

  • Comes from a rural community in New York state
  • Has an excellent high school GPA (minimum 90% average)
  • Has extra-curricular activities which document some experience in a healthcare setting and a commitment to service work
  • Has SAT scores of 1250 or better (combined Critical Reading & Math) or ACT score of 28 Composite or better
  • Can be considered to be disadvantaged or from a background which makes it unlikely they would compete for admission to medical school through a traditional route

Acceptance into these programs indicates your willingness to participate in the Rural Medical Scholars Program (RMSP). You will therefore be assigned to the RMSP track as a medical student at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
