CINCINNATI, Ohio (April 16, 2018) – Mount St. Joseph University has entered into an articulation agreement with Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine (MU-COM).

“Pre-medical students here at the Mount now have an incredible opportunity for furthering their education,” says the Mount’s provost, Diana Davis, Ph.D., “The Fast Track Program is a brilliant idea, and we look forward to seeing our students take their success to Marian University.”

The MU-COM is offering students the option of a Pre-Medical Fast Track Program, which allows the students to choose between the Early Acceptance Track or the Guaranteed Interview Track.

“We are so pleased to have partnered with the Mount on this project,” says Marian University’s Vice President of Health Science and Dean of Communications Dr. Donald Sefcik, “It is perfect for Mount students who are serious about a career in medicine. Marian and the Mount share similar values and have similar heritages. I know the Mount students will make a positive transition and find the program rewarding.”

The Mount’s articulation agreements enable students pursuing graduate degrees in law, medicine, and chemical engineering. The Mount also has articulation agreements with Northern Kentucky University, Chase College of Law, the University of St. Thomas Law, Miami University, and the University of Dayton. The dual degree programs offered through these agreements help students to not only expedite their education, but also to save money on tuition.
