Hampton University, the historically Black educational institution in Virginia, has entered into an agreement with the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia. The two universities will create a joint bachelor’s degree/medical degree program.
Under the program, up to five first-year students and two alternates at Hampton will be selected for the program. Students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average in their high school science curriculum and must maintain a 3.25 GPA at Hampton.
Michael Druitt, an assistant professor in the pre-health program, is the Hampton University coordinator of the joint degree program.
