The Northeast Ohio Area Health Education Center (AHEC) is dedicated to creating opportunities in the health professions, especially in medically underserved areas.
To help accomplish this, AHEC is sponsoring payment for MCAT preparation through the Princeton Review. This is a no-cost opportunity for selected underrepresented minorities who live in underserved areas, live or attend a university in Northeast Ohio, and have an interest in attending NEOMED’s College of Medicine to prepare for the medical school admission test.
“The cost of MCAT prep can be a barrier to entry into the health professions,” said Patti Thornborough, regional program director of the Northeast Ohio AHEC. “This can be a vital opportunity for assistance on the path to medical school.”
Anyone can apply for the test prep funding, but first consideration is given to applicants from groups underrepresented in health care professions.
AHEC is supported in part by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
