Icahn School of Medicine - FlexMed Program

Return to Fellowship Search

FlexMed allows college sophomores in any major to apply for early assurance to our school of medicine. Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is the first medical school in the United States to create a new and progressive approach for students who seek early assurance of admission to medical school. Once accepted, students will be free to pursue their area of study, unencumbered by the traditional science requirements and MCAT. This program is an expansion of the longstanding Humanities and Medicine Early Assurance Program (HuMed) and the Science and Medicine Program (SciMed).

Sinai between the junior and senior year which includes clinical service rotations, an organic chemistry/physics course, free housing and weekly ethics discussions.
