Early Assurance Program
Well-qualified Wake Forest University undergraduates, upon
completion of their sophomore year, may apply for acceptance through the Early
Assurance Program (EAP), entering Medical School at the completion of their
senior year. The deadline for the Early Assurance Program is November 1.
Applicants must have an overall GPA of 3.5 and an overall
science GPA of 3.5 (verified each semester in school) and completion of half of
the following prerequisite courses to apply under the EAP program. The
remaining of these courses should be completed prior to matriculation.
Other recommended coursework include those listed under the general academic
requirements for Wake Forest School of Medicine.
- CHM 111 and lab - College Chemistry I and lab
- CHM 280 and lab - College Chemistry II and lab
- CHM 122 and 122L - Organic I and lab OR CHM 123 Organic I
Honors and lab
CHM 223 and 223 L - Organic II and lab
- BIO114 and lab - Comparative Physiology
BIO214 and lab - Cell Biology
BIO/CHM370 Biochemistry prior to matriculation.
The MCAT is not required.
Students will use the AMCAS application service to
apply. After starting the application students should contact Wake Forest
School of Medicine providing their AAMC ID# so they can be granted permission
to apply. Once they have been given the permission to apply, they can
then choose the Early Assurance Program application type on their AMCAS
application to continue with their application.
The applicant must be a permanent resident or citizen of the
U.S. and must agree to complete requisite courses, to continue the same or
better academic excellence, to demonstrate high ethical conduct and not to
apply to any other medical school.
Non-acceptance by the EAP does not influence future
applications the student may make to Wake Forest School of Medicine.
EAP should not be confused with the
Early Decision Program.
