Use the Master of Science in Medical Physiology (MSMP) Program at Loyola University Chicago Health Sciences Campus to earn a guaranteed interview at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in only nine months.
There's a catch for all aspiring medical school students. You'll need to achieve a GPA of 3.5 or higher in the MSMP Program and have scored a 30 or higher on your most recent MCAT to receive an automatic interview at the Stritch School of Medicine.
Remember, "Physiology is the basis of medicine," states Stephen L. Lipsius, PhD, professor of physiology and director of the MSMP program. Therefore, if you want a head start on your medical career you cannot go wrong by coming to Loyola.
You will be taught by medical school professors, who use similar, if not the same, material for their medical student classes. And all classes are held in the Stritch School of Medicine. As physicians will tell you, it never hurts to improve your understanding of medical physiology before you get to medical school...your life will be much easier.
