K-State students accepted to Scholars in Rural Health program
Seven Kansas State University students from the College of Arts and Sciences were recently accepted to the Scholars in Rural Health program. This early acceptance program is specifically for Kansas residents from rural areas with a desire to return and practice rural medicine. Students apply for the program in the second semester of their sophomore year in college.
The program provides scholars assured admission to the University of Kansas School of Medicine upon successful completion of program requirements and graduation from their undergraduate institution.
The following students from the College of Arts and Sciences were accepted to the Scholars in Rural Health program:
Micah Meyer, biochemistry and molecular biophysics, Bern; Karleigh Arndt, biology, Fort Scott; Quinton Elliot, biology, Great Bend; Matt Mindrup, biology, Hays; Kaden Brandt, biology, and Brandt Rose, biology, both from Holton; and Andrea Vierthaler, life sciences, Isabel.
Annaka Applequist, kinesiology student from the College of Human Ecology, Hays, also was accepted into the program.
"Each of these students has excelled academically, especially in their science courses thus far," said pre-health professions advisor Kaela Urquhart, "and they have all shown initiative in shadowing and service opportunities in order to qualify for this program."
The College of Arts and Sciences dean's office extends a warm congratulations to all of these students on their acceptance into the Scholars in Rural Health program.
