Medical Admissions Prep Program (MAPP) 

The School of Medicine held its first annual Summer Preparation Program for the MCAT in April 2001. With its amazing success, we have continued to offer the program for students preparing for medical school. 

Included Kaplan Course & Writing Seminar

Also included in the program is a Kaplan Course which reviews physics, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, verbal reasoning, and math. Students have supplemental instruction to augment the Kaplan Course from a qualified tutor, as well as a group study and access to test banks and practice exams. To ensure readiness for the application for medical school, all students participate in a professional writing seminar that focuses on personal statements.

The 2021 MAPP application period has closed. Congratulations to the 17 applicants selected for this years program.
