Partnership Plan with KCUMB
  

  

William Jewell College, in cooperation with the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCUMB), offers a seven-year coordinated program in medicine (three years at William Jewell and four years at KCUMB) leading to both the bachelor of arts and doctor of osteopathic medicine degrees. Participation in this program is competitive and is meant to recognize the academic potential of students pursuing a career in medicine.

Up to two students per year will be selected for early admission to KCUMB. A student interested in being selected as a Dr. William Jewell Scholar with doctoral study in osteopathic medicine at KCUMB should normally seek a B.A. degree in chemistry, biochemistry, or biology. An applicant must have an ACT composite score of 28 or higher as well as an outstanding first-year academic record. A person chosen for this program must maintain a minimum overall college GPA of 3.25, with a minimum GPA of 3.50 in the sciences, but the MCAT is not required. The Premedical Advisory Committee will also consider a student's community service, college and high school activities, and knowledge of and dedication to the field of osteopathic medicine.  Application for this program must be made to the Premed Committee early in the fall of the sophomore year.

The following curricula are offered as examples of what must be accomplished during the three years at William Jewell.
