An accelerated 3+4 year program leading to a combined bachelor’s and a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D.) degree is offered in partnership with the following schools:
- College of Arts and Sciences of the University of Pennsylvania
- Hampton University (Hampton, VA)
- Lehigh University (Bethlehem, PA)
- Muhlenberg College (Allentown, PA)
- Villanova University (Villanova, PA)
The Bio-Dental program enables qualified students to earn both their bachelor’s degree from one of our partner institutions and a D.M.D. degree from Penn Dental Medicine in seven years. Primary admission is made through application to the participating undergraduate institution’s admissions office. During the three-year undergraduate component of the program, our partner schools monitor and determine a student’s eligibility to remain in the program based on predetermined requirements. All offers of admission from Penn Dental Medicine are conditional based on both academic and experiential requirements during undergraduate enrollment up to the point of planned matriculation at Penn Dental Medicine.
