Program Requirements for Pre-Podiatry

Mount Saint Mary College (MSMC) offers a 3 + 4 (seven years) joint degree program in podiatry in conjunction with the New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM). The student completes the general education requirements for a BA in biology at MSMC in three years and after four years of professional studies at NYCPM earns a D.P.M. degree in Podiatric Medicine. After the successful completion of the first year of professional studies, 30 credits of course work will be transferred to MSMC and MSMC will award the student a BA in biology.

In order to begin the professional portion of the program, the student must complete 90 credits and maintain a 3.0 Grade Point Average in all undergraduate course work and a 3.0 in the required math and science courses. The student must also: (1) submit a timely and satisfactory formal application to the New York College of Podiatric Medicine; (2) obtain official letters of recommendation; (3) obtain official MCAT scores at least equal to NYCPM’s current minimum; and (4) achieve a satisfactory evaluation in a personal interview.
