“I don’t know if I would have gotten into medical school if it wasn’t for the College of Biosciences. I knew the swing of medical school applications before attending COB, but through KCU’s professional development series I learned how to do interviews and what to put on interview statements.”

- Megan Wheeler, Masters of Biomedical Sciences 2017 graduate and KCU-Joplin MSI
