Prep for Success Intensive

June 1-7, 2014
Applications Due: April 7th 

The Dental Admission Test (DAT) or Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is a deciding factor in the career of pre-dental or pre-medical undergraduate students.  Most students are searching for the formula to getting into medical or dental school. NEMO AHEC can help: taking the right college classes will give you academic background and PSI will set you up with the critical thinking, test taking skills and practice that will help you with the DAT, MCAT, and more. If you are feeling the pressure to prepare for the DAT or MCAT, you are in the right place. 

PSI is an intensive week-long colloquium where six pre-medical and six pre-dental students will collaborate under expert facilitation with the primary goal of MCAT and DAT success.

This is where you will learn how to test smarter and problem solve faster.  

The camp will be held in Kirksville, Missouri on the Truman State University, and AT Still University Campuses.

Progress Through Partnerships

Missouri AHEC's primary goal is to support and sustain a pipeline for the production of primary care health professionals for underserved areas in Missouri. 

The pipeline begins with young people in underserved communities, fosters their interest in health careers and helps them prepare for health professions training.  It continues through their college and professional school experiences when we enable their schools to provide part of their health-care professional training in underserved communities.  After graduation, the pipeline helps those individuals establish careers and remain in underserved areas.  AHEC glues the pipeline together through our collaboration with educational institutions, federal and state agencies, local organizations and underserved communities.
