The Midwestern University Bridges Program is a diversity initiative aimed at increasing opportunities for aspiring students to pursue a health professions career. The program provides qualified students admitted to the Biomedical Science Programs in the University’s College of Graduate Studies on the Downers Grove, Illinois, and Glendale, Arizona Campuses who are members of underrepresented minority and economically or environmentally disadvantaged populations with a clear path to achieving the goal of becoming a healthcare professional.
Students admitted to the Biomedical Science Master of Arts and Master of Science Programs who meet the Bridges Program eligibility requirements can apply for admission to the participating Midwestern University colleges for provisional early acceptance by July 15 of the year preceding completion of their Biomedical Science Program. To be eligible, minimum overall and science GPAs in the Biomedical Sciences Program and graduate college admissions test scores are required.
The Bridges Program offers students an excellent foundation by giving them the ability to increase basic science knowledge and improve study skills. Graduate faculty mentoring and counseling will help students stay on track for success. With provisional early acceptance, students will have peace of mind knowing that their next academic step awaits, so they can focus on their studies without having to worry about and prepare for applying to their doctoral program.
