The Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program (MSP) promotes the education of students who are scientifically competent, compassionate and socially conscious. Rice and Baylor College of Medicine select up to six incoming freshmen each year to pursue a four-year bachelor's degree at Rice, followed by admission (conditional acceptance) to Baylor College of Medicine.
MSP students are encouraged to explore the entire range of Rice undergraduate programs to expose themselves to a broad-based education. Those selected to the program will apply insight from this extensive exposure to the liberal arts and other disciplines to the study of modern medical science.
Students admitted to Rice but not selected for the Rice/Baylor Medical Scholars Program may still apply to Baylor College of Medicine or any other medical school following their Rice undergraduate experience.
