The St. Louis Campus expands Ponce Health Sciences University as its second satellite campus in a continued mission toward serving diverse and underserved communities. With a diverse pool of prospective students, highly credentialed educators, and a pressing need for medical and psychological health professionals, St. Louis represented the perfect opportunity to expand the PHSU campus and advance our efforts to be recognized as prestigious global academic and research leaders, educating diverse populations while focusing research efforts on addressing health disparities.
A NEW MEDICAL SCHOOL IN ST. LOUIS
In 2020, the school announced plans for a new School of Medicine in St. Louis. In addition to beginning its Doctor of Medicine program, the school will include a hospital for students to complete their residencies and provide care to the community. This expansion will allow PHSU St. Louis to put action behind their vision of providing high-quality healthcare education and research opportunities to students who show potential to succeed as a doctor, especially those who might need an alternate pathway to medical school.
The top 20% of the graduating class is offered an interview to Ponce Health Sciences University's School of Medicine's MD program, a U.S. regionally accredited institution (admitted students are required to demonstrate competency in speaking Spanish).
A.T. Still University - Kirksville offers MSMS students who graduate from PHSU St. Louis with a GPA of at least 3.4 and an MCAT over 500 a guaranteed admissions interview to the DO or Pharmacy program.
Why PHSU - ST LOUIS?
The MSMS program started in 2014 at PHSU's main campus in Puerto Rico and has continue to have a dramatic effect on pathways for students entering medical school who were previously denied or didn't have a clear path.
Additionally, MSMS graduates admitted to PHSU's medical school consistently outperform their classmates in both curriculum and on USMLE Step 1 scoring.
