Students in this program first pursue an undergraduate program at John Carroll for four years. Upon completing your studies at JCU, you’ll seamlessly transition to a reserved seat in OU-HCOM’s medical school. (Students must fulfill all program requirements and meet certain academic standards.) OU-HCOM waives its Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) requirement for students in the early acceptance program.

JCU’s Pre-Health Professions Office is dedicated to assisting students interested in medicine and related careers. JCU is one of the few liberal arts universities in the nation with a physician-in-residence who is available to help advise pre-health students.

JCU pre-health students can conduct advanced research with faculty and gain valuable internship experience at world-class healthcare institutions in Cleveland. Students in the JCU/OU early acceptance program also have opportunities to connect with current OU-HCOM students and activities, providing insight into life as a medical student.
