Important Information for International Students Intending to Study Medicine

International students who perform well academically at Amherst College often have opportunities for further study in the U.S. For example, international students have graduated from Amherst and entered Ph.D. programs at U.S. universities with substantial scholarship support. However, there is one important exception for students interested in medical training leading to the M.D. degree.
