Second, the Florida A&M University-FAU Medical Scholars Program is an innovative, 8-year, Bachelor of Science – MD program whereby highly successful, under-represented minority high school seniors are provided a conditional admission to the College pending successful completion of rigorous coursework designed to develop physicians committed to patient centered, culturally competent care and servant-leadership.
