Maximum Number of Years to Complete the M.D. Degree

The requirements of the M.D. degree must be completed within a six (6) year period. Activated military students and students enrolled in dual degree programs may request an extension for the period of active duty or enrollment. Students failing to complete the medical school program in six years (including leaves of absence) will be dismissed. Reentry requirements will apply for all students who deviate from the traditional four-year medical education program. This includes activity such as research, dual degree, and academic difficulties. Students must undergo a clinical skills assessment prior to reentering the clinical environment. The Re-entry Program is coordinated through the Office of Medical Education.
