This fall we welcomed the third class of McCollough Pre-Medical Scholars. Over the past two years the McCollough interdisciplinary pre-medical program has grown significantly. Our students are among the very best undergraduates, excelling in and out of the classroom. While the pandemic gave us plenty to be concerned with, it did open doors for interacting with leaders around the world through our newfound comfort with video conferencing. Early this fall the McCollough Scholars were able to talk virtually with Dr. George Lundberg, former editor of JAMA. Later this semester, they will interact with Dr. Jeff Bishop, Tenet Endowed Chair in Bioethics at St. Louis University. We also look forward to the new class of McCollough Scholars applying for medical schools at the end of this academic year.
