Still Scholars Early Acceptance Program
The Still Scholars Early Acceptance Program is designed to provide admission opportunities to outstanding students who aspire to become osteopathic physicians at A.T. Still University's Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM). ATSU-KCOM prides itself on developing physicians who focus on whole person healthcare and community service, and looks for students who also hold these values. ATSU-KCOM's Still Scholars Early Acceptance program rewards highly capable students who are dedicated to the osteopathic philosophy with admittance into our institution's founding osteopathic medical program without traditional MCAT requirements. This program encourages students to focus on developing strong academic and leadership skills, yet allows them to focus on their undergraduate experience without the additional pressures of preparing for the MCAT. In addition, Still Scholars are awarded an academic scholarship for medical school upon entry to A.T. Still University's Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Articulation agreements are in place with various undergraduate institutions across the United States to help pre-screen qualified applicants; however, students from any four-year accredited undergraduate institution in the United States may apply. Students representing schools that have an agreement with KCOM receive priority consideration in the selection process.
