MSBS - Medical Sciences

The primary goal of this program is to educate and train graduate students who have completed all prerequisites required for medical school but wish to enhance their understanding of the biological sciences and potentially improve their academic credentials for applying to medical school.  Approximately 50 students are accepted into this one year program.  Historically 65 to 80 percent have been successful in matriculating into a medical class the following year.

The MedStart Program

The program allows students to enroll into The University of Toledo's College of Medicine program for the next academic year following completion of the four-year baccalaureate education.
