Are you currently serving and enlisted but have goals to become a medical doctor? If you ever thought about going to medical school, but worry about the cost, the courses, and how you can support your family at the same time? Then you need to listen to LTC Olivia Nunn speak with the experts at the Uniformed Services University on their Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program.

The Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2) is a partnership between the Uniformed Services University and Armed Forces. This 24-month program will enable highly qualified enlisted service members to complete the preparatory coursework for application to medical school while maintaining an active duty status.

Program components includes full-time coursework in a traditional classroom setting (in the Washington, D.C. area), structured pre-health advising, formal Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) preparation, dedicated faculty and peer mentoring at USU, and integrated clinical exposure. Upon completion, the successful student should be a competitive applicant to medical school.
