Students interested in earning either a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree upon completing a bachelor’s degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford may choose to major in any academic discipline. Most students currently attending medical schools majored in biology. Each medical school may have specific requirements, in addition to the minimum courses required by all medical schools, so students are advised to check with the medical schools of their choice prior to completing their bachelor’s degree.

Please be advised


Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
