The Medical School Early Acceptance Program (MSEAP) is a unique collaboration between MTSU and Meharry Medical College. The purpose of the program is to address the shortage of primary care physicians in the United States and especially the state of Tennessee by providing highly qualified students an enriched undergraduate experience in preparation for medical school. Admission into this program is highly competitive. Designed for individuals who have a clear career focus prior to entering college, the program allows students to complete both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Doctor of Medicine degree in seven years. This program is an accelerated program; the expectation is for students to spend three years as an undergraduate and an additional four years in medical school at Meharry. After successful completion of the prerequisite requirements, the program assures highly motivated undergraduates admission to Meharry Medical College.
