MACU/OSU-CHS 3+1 Program
MACU is proud to partner with the Oklahoma State University Center for Health Sciences (OSU-CHS) to offer a 3+1 Program for undergraduate students.
This program gives undergraduate students studying biology at MACU the option to transfer to OSU-CHS during their sophomore year and begin their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine program, enabling them to finish in seven years instead of the traditional eight years.
How Does the 3+1 Program Work?
- Students spend their first three years at MACU in pursuit of their B.S. in Biology
- In their fourth year, students will matriculate to OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine to start their first year of medical school.
- After successful completion of their first year of medical school, students in the 3+1 Program will be awarded their bachelor’s degree from MACU
- After year four of medical school, students in the 3+1 Program will receive their Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree
