The Graduate School offers 47 different graduate programs.
Brown Medical School
The University's medical program started in 1811. In 1984, Brown endorsed an eight-year medical program called the Program in Liberal Medical
Education (PLME). The majority of openings for the first-year medical school class are reserved for PLME students. Each year,
approximately 60 students matriculate into the PLME out of an applicant pool of about 1,600, making it among the most selective
undergraduate programs in the country. Brown offers a joint program with Dartmouth Medical School called the Brown-Dartmouth Program. Approximately 15 students at
Dartmouth Medical School enroll in this program annually. They spend the first two basic medical science years at Dartmouth and the next two years in clinical education at Brown, where
they receive their M.D. degree.
