Entry Requirements

ACM gives university degree holders with good qualifications the opportunity to pursue medicine.

All graduate students must:

  1. Meet the requirements for undergraduate entry as stated on the Graduate Entry page.
  2. Have at least a good first degree (minimum of a second class lower), and
  3. Have taken science courses at the University level equivalent to those taken at Level 100.

Graduate students with a science-based degree may enter at Level 200 (the second year). They, however, must take those Level 100 (first year) University Required compulsory courses, which they do not have credits for, before graduation. In exceptional cases, students who have obtained excellent grades at the A (Aggregate 6 or below) and O levels may be considered to enter at Level 200 by the Admission Interview Committee.

Other graduate students who do not have science-based degrees and/or have not taken the requisite university level science courses, as defined above, but meet the minimum requirements for undergraduate entry, may be admitted to Level 100 (first year).

Short-listed applicants will have to pass an interview and/or entrance examination.

All Applicants must take note that the process for admission to the Accra College of Medicine is very transparent.  Applicants should therefore beware of any persons who may approach them on the pretext of assisting them gain admission for a fee.
