Charles Drew University approved to start medical degree program
LOUISVILLE, Ky. — University officials in Kentucky have notified a campus community that the University of Louisville Medical School has been approved to begin offering its first bachelor’s and master’s programs in the spring. The university already has 18,800 students enrolled in a four-year education program.
The first class will begin in the spring 2020 semester with eight students, and is expected to reach 100 in its first semester.
“The University of Louisville Medical School is thrilled to be accepted to the Association of American Medical Colleges Medical-Brelated Education Program (MBEP) for the first time by the University of Louisville’s medical school dean and our faculty advisory committee,” said David W. Moore, dean of the medical school at the University of Louisville, in a press release.
“We look forward to establishing the medical school’s first Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Science in Medical Education programs and welcoming a new generation of physicians,” Moore added.
The announcement was made by Dr. Thomas M. Brinkerhoff, Medical-Brelated Education Program director at the University of Louisville. The medical school’s medical program is one of four in the nation and is the only program in Kentucky.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to further the medical education of our students, our faculty and our students,” said Brinkerhoff, in the press release.
The first batch of MBPs will be awarded beginning in the spring 2020 semester.
The MBEP program is comprised of eight medical institutions with more than 3,000 medical students and a total enrollment in the program of 4,700.
While the approval process is ongoing, the University of Louisville Medical School has already applied to form four separate interdisciplinary teams to begin the MBEP course development. The four teams are comprised of eight medical schools, including one from the University of Louisville Medical School.
