The Honors Program in Medical Education (HPME) offers a unique educational experience for talented students anticipating a career in medicine or medical science. The HPME fosters flexibility and creativity in the undergraduate education while reducing the pressures related to gaining acceptance to medical school. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the reduced pressure by exploring and challenging themselves personally and professionally to prepare a solid foundation for success in medical school and for leadership roles in their careers in medicine. Since the HPME accepts a limited number of students, only those who demonstrate superior high school achievement and academic aptitude and who apply directly from high school are considered. Students enrolled in HPME are expected to maintain a GPA greater than 3.5 in order to matriculate at Feinberg.
The Northwestern Undergraduate Premedical Scholars Program (NUPSP) is an early MD acceptance program into the Feinberg School of Medicine for high achieving Northwestern University undergraduate students with a demonstrated commitment to a career as a physician. Northwestern University students are accepted during their third undergraduate year for matriculation into the Feinberg School after their 4th or senior year. Five students are accepted each year.
