Air Force selects 5 enlisted Airmen for medical prep school read the article here.
The Uniformed Services University (USU) is partnering with the Armed Services to develop and implement the Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2). The EMDP2 is 24-month program that will enable highly-qualified enlisted service members to complete the preparatory coursework for application to medical school while maintaining an active duty status. EMDP2 candidates will include service members who demonstrate integrity, are passionate about service in harm's way, and are dedicated to becoming future clinicians, leaders and scholars of the nation's medical force. Candidates will reflect the diversity of our Armed Forces.
Criteria/Admission Requirements: Candidates must possess a baccalaureate degree from an accredited academic institution with a minimum of a 3.2 grade point average (GPA) and meet Service requirements for commissioning.
Armed services will provide additional admission requirements. The projected start date for the first cohort of EMDP2 candidates is July 2014. Please see Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
Program components will include full-time coursework in a traditional classroom setting (in the Washington DC area), structured pre-health advising, formal Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) preparation, dedicated faculty and peer mentoring at USU, and integrated clinical exposure. Upon completion of the program, the successful student should be a competitive applicant to medical school.
Members must apply and be selected through their respective armed service.
