KCU, Harris-Stowe Increase Med School Opportunities for Underrepresented Minorities

KCU announced a partnership with Harris-Stowe State University (HSSU), the highest-ranking institution in Missouri for granting degrees in mathematics and statistics to African-American students.

The agreement, signed on Nov. 13, creates a dual undergraduate and graduate degree program, as well as automatic acceptance into KCU's College of Osteopathic Medicine, pending fulfillment of all admissions requirements. Five HSSU students will be selected each year to participate.

Through this partnership, KCU and HSSU provide a pathway for underrepresented minorities to enter the profession of medicine and create a physician base that is more representative of the ever-changing face of the communities they serve. (read more)
