The Lester R. Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program encourages young people from rural backgrounds to pursue a medical education.
Students accepted into the pre-admission program are offered acceptance into the MU School of Medicine on the condition that they achieve certain academic standards, demonstrate ongoing professionalism, and participate in required activities. See the application requirements.
Students who matriculate to the University of Missouri School of Medicine through the Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program also have curricular requirements while attending medical school.
All applicants are required to sign a statement of intent acknowledging their commitment to the Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program and the MU Rural Scholars Program.
