Honors Medical Scholars (HMS)

The Florida State University College of Medicine has partnered with the Honors Program to create a professional-track program available, on a highly competitive basis, to a small number of motivated first-year students in each incoming Honors class. The program gives students a head start on their chosen careers by allowing them to become members of the College of Medicine community while they are still undergraduates.

The Honors Medical Scholars program is not a Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Philosophy (BS/MD) program and does not guarantee admission into the College of Medicine.
