May 2, 2017

The 2017 MEDPREP Certficate Ceremony and Banquet, "Keys to Success," was held on April 30, 2017 in the SIUC Student Center Ballrooms. 32 MEDPREP students, who started in the summer of 2015, were honored for their hard work in the program over the past two years. Students in the class gained admission to a total of 22 different dental and medical schools, including the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine. After a certificate ceremony featuring words of inspiration by Interim Chancellor Dr. William Bradley Colwell, and SIU School of Medicine Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion Dr. Wesley McNeese, the students were treated to a banquet organized by the MEDPREP first year students (Class of 2018). Members of the MEDPREP faculty and staff, as well as friends and family of the certificate recipients, were also in attendance. Congratulations to the MEDPREP Class of 2017!
