The Master of Science in Medical Sciences (MAMS) program is one of the oldest and most successful special Master’s programs in the United States. Since it began in 1985, MAMS has selectively identified students who are both driven and dedicated to pursuing a career in medicine. The program has been largely successful in helping over 2,000 students gain admission to US medical schools. Learn more.
