The Summer Talent Academy for Professions in Health (STAPH) offers highly talented students a head start on college life and future careers in medicine and allied health professions.

Students live as college students while exploring the work of medical professionals. They move into a residence hall, make new friends, attend classes and — most importantly — they work with highly regarded faculty and health professionals from Truman and A.T. Still University of Health Sciences.

Created for rising high school juniors and seniors, STAPH will challenge students academically and stimulate their interest in health professions. The integrated curriculum exposes students to osteopathic medicine, nursing and health careers such as exercise science, audiology/speech pathology, athletic training, physical and occupational therapy, and nutrition.
