JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Southern State University and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences have approved a new program that will streamline medical education for some students.
The partnership signed Friday creates a “Yours to Lose” medical acceptance program. It will allow up to 25 Missouri Southern students a year to be admitted into KCU’s new medical school at the same time as they are accepted to Missouri Southern.
The Joplin Globe reports students in the program will enter Missouri Southern was pre-med students and be assured they will become students at KCU when they complete their undergraduate degrees. The criteria for acceptance have not been determined.
The students in the program will have a rigorous curriculum and non-traditional scheduling to prepare them for medical school.
