Posted In: Events, KCOM, Missouri Campus, University Headlines

For the second consecutive year, A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) hosted the Heartland PreMed Conference.

140 students from across the country converged on ATSU’s Kirksville, Missouri, campus to participate in professional development activities designed to develop skills they need to be successful during the medical school application process.

To develop these skills, attendees participated in sessions on applying to medical school and mock medical school interviews. Participants were also able to get hands-on experience in ATSU’s state of the art osteopathic manipulation, ultrasound, and human patient simulation labs. Attendees were also able to visit the Still Research Institute, the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine, and receive information from several osteopathic medical schools, Army, Air Force, Navy, and an MCAT prep company.

“We wanted to have a conference in the Midwest because there are not any big professional development opportunities for students in the Midwest that are cost-effective, but also local,” said Andrea O’Brien, MS, director, admissions-recruiting.

16 osteopathic medical schools from across the country participated in this year’s event, which was sponsored by ATSU-KCOM, Des Moines University, Kansas City University, and Marion University. Participation in the second annual event grew by nearly 30% from last year’s conference.
