Prep for Success Intensive (PSI)

The Prep for Success Intensive (PSI) is an intensive week-long colloquium where six pre-medical and six pre-dental students will collaborate under expert facilitation with the primary goal of MCAT and DAT success. This is where you will learn how to test smart and problem solve faster.

The event will be held in Kirksville, Missouri on the Truman State University and A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine campuses. Learning will be facilitated by local University science faculty, and students will be mentored by medical and dental students from ATSU who underwent the same pressure and succeeded.

Students with the following qualifications will be considered for admission to the program*:

  • Missouri residence
  • Minimum 60 college credits
  • 2 semesters of college-level Biology and 2 semesters of college-level Chemistry
