Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, has established a new program aimed at increasing the number of undergraduate students who apply to the university’s medical school. Project PRE MED (Providing Real World Experiences for Future Marshall Educated Doctors) will invite black and other minority college students to campus for a weekend this October.
Students accepted in the program will attend medical school classes, meet with faculty and current medical school students, tour the school’s facility, and attend seminars on preparing for the Medical College Admission Test and on applying to medical school.
Students who are interested in the program can apply through September 9th. Lodging and meal are provided free of charge and transportation assistance is available. More information is available here.
