Early Acceptance Program

Campbell University’s Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine offers an Early Acceptance Program for Medicine to attract prospective students who are interested in attending medical school after completing their undergraduate studies.

Through this program, seats are reserved in future medical school classes for exceptional students matriculating at Campbell as freshmen. All Campbell University applicants may compete for the Early Acceptance Program for Medicine, and finalists will be interviewed by the School of Osteopathic Medicine’s admission committee as part of the selection process.

Campbell’s Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree program offers an innovative and proven medical curriculum. Students in the School of Osteopathic Medicine actively learn in an environment that provides clinical training while integrating biomedical sciences with hands-on experiences using modern technology.

Students in the Early Acceptance Program for Medicine will be eligible to participate in several specialized medically-related experiences during their undergraduate years based on availability. These may include:

  • Shadowing physicians
  • Participating in Interprofessional Education events with fellow students who are preparing to enter a healthcare field such as pharmacy, nursing, physical therapy or physician assistant
