Truman and A.T. Still University have reached an agreement that will allow students to finish undergraduate and medical school within seven years.
The Pre-Med/Med Accelerated Track program, also known as the “3+4” program, will allow incoming freshmen the option to enter medical school three years after entering Truman. This program encourages students to focus on developing strong academic and leadership skills during their undergraduate experience without the traditional MCAT requirement.
Students entering Truman in the fall will be eligible to apply for the program.
Truman representatives Sue Thomas, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost, and Janet Gooch, dean of the School of Health Sciences and Education, sign an agreement with administrators at A.T. Still University, Jan. 28. The two Kirksville-based universities are partnering on the Pre-Med/Med Accelerated Track program, which allows students to finish undergraduate and medical school in seven years.
