PMHPP Early Application Options

What is a linkage program? A linkage program is a gateway to earlier acceptance into medical/health professional school or a special/preferred review of your application during the regular application cycle.

Early Assurance and Preferred Admission Review Programs

For our current PMHPP students, Duquesne has one Early Assurance Program, and one Preferred Admissions Review Program with:

Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) - Early Assurance                     

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) - Preferred Admission Review          

These programs are applied to after the student is enrolled at Duquesne University and a student enrolled in the PMHPP, and are not freshman admit programs. More information is available through the PMHPP.

Admission requirements are subject to change at the discretion of medical programs listed above and are outside the control of the Pre-Medical and Health Professions Programs. These are competitive programs, and an interview and/or acceptance cannot be guaranteed.  Final acceptance to these programs are at the sole discretion of the medical or health professional program.

***While Duquesne University is in the process of developing an osteopathic medical school, at the present time, there is no linkage or early assurance program with the PMHPP for the Duquesne University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
