    Hello Yimfong, most medical school programs in the US are graduate programs, meaning that students must complete 4 years of undergraduate work before enrolling. There are some programs that are combined programs, meaning they combine the undergraduate and graduate years together, but most are graduate programs. Good luck.

    The MD program IS an undergraduate program, officially anyway. The only stipulation is that you must have done at least 90 semester credits before you are eligible to study medicine.

    I believe the original poster was asking about 6+ year programs right out of HS. There ARE several of these, highly competitive of course.

    You can find a list in the AAMC Medical School Admissions Requirements, available at your nearest medical school bookstore or perhaps some astute reader will provide a free on-line link with a list of such programs.

    Several places do offer "undergraduate" medical programs - 6 to 7 yr. programs. But...I'm not sure that it's very recommended to do them. NEOUCOM has one (north eastern ohio university) and Northwestern University might do one.
