Robert Morris University (RMU), Drexel University College of Medicine, and Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) today announced plans to launch a unique, collaborative medical education program designed to attract promising students who will ultimately practice medicine in the Pittsburgh region.
The Scholars Articulation Program will recruit qualified high school seniors to enroll in RMU's pre-medicine program in preparation for attending medical school at Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. During their undergraduate career, students will complete a pre-professional internship at AGH, which is a regional campus of Drexel University College of Medicine. Then, during their final two years of medical school, they will return to the hospital for a clerkship and a clinical rotation.
