ATSU hosts first Heartland PreMed Conference for undergraduate students

September 24, 2018
Posted In: KCOM, Missouri Campus, University Headlines

A.T. Still University (ATSU) hosted the first Heartland PreMed Conference at its Kirksville, Missouri, campus on Saturday, Sept. 8. Co-sponsors of the event were Des Moines University, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, and Marian University-College of Osteopathic Medicine. The one-day conference gave undergraduate students nationwide who are interested in pursuing a career in osteopathic medicine, the opportunity to learn more about the field.

Presenters from around the country, 15 medical schools, and other exhibitors were able to offer a full-scale list of sessions, hands-on activities in ATSU-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine’s labs, and mock interviews to around 160 people from 72 undergraduate schools.

“This conference started out as something that my staff and I identified as a gap in professional development for premed students in the Midwest who are not able to travel to the major cities to attend a national convention,” said Andrea O’Brien, director of admissions-recruitment. Our event was geared toward helping the attendees learn what medical schools were looking for, and how they could work to develop their skills and experiences to make themselves stand out and be competitive.”
