Missouri Southern State University has partnered with the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences to develop the Yours to Lose – Advanced Medical School Acceptance Program. Students accepted into the program will be admitted to KCU medical school’s new Joplin campus at the same time they are accepted to Missouri Southern. This exclusive partnership creates a seamless transition into medical school through an accelerated, three-year program. Taught by scholarly and real-world field experts, students will have access to both MSSU and KCU faculty during their undergraduate career, as well as use of newly renovated chemistry and biology labs, along with one of the largest undergraduate cadaver labs in the region. General education courses are focused around medical-school preparation with customized curriculum that will provide a critical foundation. After receiving their bachelor’s degree in biology, students will then transition to KCU-Joplin to finish their degree without being required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
