Exceptionally qualified students may pursue their passion through one of Stevens Accelerated Combined Degree Programs. Students admitted to these programs take three years of courses at Stevens, after which time they transfer to University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) - New Jersey Medical School, and New Jersey Dental School. Stevens confers a Bachelor's degree on a student's successful completion of the first year, and the M.D. or D.M.D. degree is awarded by the professional school at the completion of the program.

Students must meet requirements as set out by the University in order to be admitted to the program. Interested students are invited to visit the department of Chemistry, Chemical Biology & Biomedical Engineering for more information, or admissions to apply today.
