Osteopathic Medicine

The "3-4" Early Admission Partners Program in Osteopathic Medicine

This program enables pre-med students to apply to Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCUMB) in the fall of the sophomore year. If accepted, they may complete all CMU general education requirements for the program in three years. During the summer after the sophomore year, the student must complete a five-day med-prep course at KCUMB. The MCAT, normally required for admission to KCUMB, is not required of students applying through our Partners Program. Students matriculate at KCUMB as full-time first-year students following their third year at CMU. They receive their bachelors degree from CMU following successful completion of their first-year at KCUMB. Alternatively, students may complete all requirements for graduation from CMU in the three years prior to matriculating at KCUMB. Please consult Dr. Michael Tilley, for further information.
