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 2018-19 class of West Michigan OsteoScholars.

West Michigan OsteoScholars is a program that partners with top 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 program is open to all students in Muskegon, Oceana, Newaygo and northern Ottawa Counties.  It provides resources and guidance for those who have the aptitude and commitment to succeed, and is especially helpful to those who may be first-generation college or are from an under-served area.  The program is donor funded, so there is no cost to students.

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 18.  Applications are available at www.OsteoScholars.com or by clicking this link.
