Allopathic Medicine (M.D.)

Allopathic medical schools offer the doctor of medicine (MD) degree following four years of medical training. As a general rule, the first two years of the medical school curriculum involve primarily course work, while the third and fourth years involve clinical rotations and training.
 
There are more than 150 accredited allopathic medical schools in the United States. These schools graduate more than 20,000 medical students each year. These accredited allopathic medical schools are represented by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC). The AAMC also oversees the MCAT and AMCAS.
