The purpose of the Medical Education Readiness Program is to prepare prospective students to be successful as a medical student. Students accepted into this program are not being admitted into medical school, and will not be awarded any kind of degree or credential other than a certificate of completion. However, we believe that students who successfully complete the program will be prepared for the challenge of medical school.
