The Medical/Dental Education Preparatory Program (MEDPREP), founded in 1972 as a postbaccalaureate prehealth professional program, is a department within Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. MEDPREP provides an opportunity, in a supportive environment, for students to demonstrate their potential for success in health professional schools.

MEDPREP's MISSION is to increase the numbers of underrepresented minority and disadvantaged students from southern and central Illinois who will enter and graduate from health professions schools and who will serve in U.S. health professions shortage areas. Therefore, the highest priority for MEDPREP participation is given to residents of central and southern Illinois.

As of the 2007-08 school year, a total of 1325 students have participated in MEDPREP. Alumni around the nation attest to the program’s success.
