OsteoScholars: The Path From High School to DO







Do you know a student with the talent and drive to become a physician?

Applications are now being accepted for the 2017-18 class of West Michigan OsteoScholars.

West Michigan OsteoScholars is a program that partners with world-class local resources to give high school students learning opportunities that prepare them for college and medical school.  Meetings are held just once a month and students are introduced to area physician mentors, resume-building experiences, and they can even try their hand at medical procedures at the Mercy Regional Simulation Lab.

This program is the first step on a path of exclusive opportunities up to and including preferential admission to MSU College of Osteopathic Medicine.  The value of these experiences cannot be overstated.

This not only for all-stars; it also provides resources and guidance for those who have the aptitude and commitment to succeed, but may be first-generation college or have other obstacles to overcome.  There is no cost to attend, but enrollment is limited.

If you know a high school student who would benefit from this program, please encourage them to apply. You could start them on a path that helps their dream become reality.

The application deadline is Tuesday, September 19.  Applications are available at or by clicking this link.
