Bryant Scholars Program for early admission to the MU School of Medicine

MSU maintains a cooperative agreement with the MU School of Medicine whereby up to five of our freshmen each year can gain early admission to medical school. Details about the requirements and expectations can be found in the attached document, or directly at the Bryant Pre-Admissions Program Requirements and Information page. Students who are accepted into the Bryant Scholars Program are not required to take the MCAT exam and are therefore free to pursue a more broadly-based undergraduate education. Indeed, they are encouraged to seek broad training in the social sciences to better prepare themselves for successful leadership in a rural community.

Contact Dr. Garrad (Professor Biomedical Sciences and Chair of the Premedical Committee) to obtain the application materials and other important information. It is important that interested students start the application process immediately because they will need to obtain personal evaluations from several different sources, including high school mentors. Completed applications need to be submitted to Dr. Garrad in an appropriate time manner.
