Eligibility

The highest priority for MEDPREP participation is given to residents of central and southern Illinois.  However, many of our applicants come from out of state, with the highest priority for those applicants being from groups traditionally underserved in health care (Blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans).

The MEDPREP curriculum is designed for individuals who have completed their prerequisite science/math courses.  If you have just one or two prerequisite courses remaining, you could probably work those into the MEDPREP curriculum.  If you have several prerequisites remaining, you should take those before entering the program.
