Pre-Medicine Studies: Medical School Early Admission Program
Truman has agreements with the Schools of Medicine at the University of Missouri at Columbia and University of Missouri at Kansas City. The MU-Columbia Bryant Scholar Program considers applicants from rural high schools at the end of their sophomore year (May 1). The early admission program with University of Missouri School of Medicine in Kansas City encourages applicants to apply after their sophomore or junior year with a summer due date of August 1.
In addition, sophomores are encouraged to apply to the Still Scholar Pre-Osteopathic Program before May 1 to be considered for an early admission decision to A.T. Still University.
- The Lester R. Bryant Pre-Admissions Program (MD)
In conjunction with the MU Area Health Education Center (MU-AHEC), the University of Missouri School of Medicine in Columbia, Missouri, has implemented a program to encourage young people from rural areas to pursue a medical education. Studies have shown that students from rural backgrounds are substantially more likely to practice in rural areas than students from urban backgrounds. For economic and geographic reasons, these students often prefer to attend state universities and other colleges in their region. The Bryant Scholars Pre-admission Program allows students to receive their undergraduate degrees in their region while preparing for medical school at MU.
- UMKC Medical Scholars Program (MD)
The UMKC School of Medicine offers a Medical Scholars program that may offer early and guaranteed admission to college students interested in applying to medical school. This program would offer early admission into the School of Medicine’s M.D. Program for students currently in their sophomore or junior year of college and who attend the following universities: UMKC, Truman State University, Rockhurst University, Drury University, and William Jewel College. Complete information and admission requirements can be found on the UMKC website and the application deadline is August 1.
