Partner Schools

  • About the Partners Program

    Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences-College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCU-COM) is fortunate to be able to offer a unique early admissions opportunity to outstanding undergraduate students at select educational institutions.

    The Partners Program, established in 1998, offers well-qualified undergraduate students the opportunity to gain early admission to KCU-COM.

    Through the program, undergraduate students attending certain institutions with exceptional premedical programs can apply for admission to KCU-COM during their sophomore year.

    Those accepted by the end of their sophomore year will have a reserved seat in KCU-COM following completion of their junior year and will forgo their final year of undergraduate work.

    In addition, students applying through the Partners Program are not required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Applications will be available through premedical or pre-health professions advisors at partner institutions.
