Get on the Fast Track to Medical School!

Some students know from an early age that medicine is the career for them. MedSTEP (Medical Students in the Eastern Panhandle) is a joint program of Shepherd University and the West Virginia University School of Medicine that helps simplify the process and ease the finanical burden of applying to medical school.

MedSTEP allows qualified students applying for admission to Shepherd to apply for advanced admission to the WVU School of Medicine at the same time. After graduation from Shepherd, students will attend WVU in Morgantown for the first two years of medical school, then return to the Eastern Division to complete the third and fourth years of their medical education.

Admission to MedSTEP is open to a select number of top high school seniors. Students will be selected in a competitive process.

WVU and Shepherd University are both aware of the great need for physicians in the Eastern Panhandle and see this program as a part of their mission to serve the community.
