UC Denver Begins BA/BS-MD Program

Ten students from across Colorado entered a new program at UC Denver this fall designed to take diverse high school graduates and turn them into tomorrow’s physicians. The goal is to provide tuition for these promising students through undergraduate education and CU’s medical school, and they must excel in the program’s rigorous academic training.

"This benefits both the school and the state," says Christine Nyquist, MD, associate dean for diversity and inclusion. "We’re training doctors who will be able to serve Colorado’s communities. The medical school also gains because a range of [incoming student] backgrounds improves the learning environment for all students."

Tamara Lhungay, from Longmont High School, is ready for her first year of the new BA/BS-MD program. "I love helping people, love interacting with people, love biology—this was a perfect fit."
