Wayne State University in Detroit recently announced a new program that would award high school students with four years of undergraduate study and housing followed by four years of tuition free medical school.

The Med-Direct program will begin in the summer of 2016 and enroll 10 students a year. Students will participate in summer enrichment courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and writing before their freshmen year. Throughout their undergraduate training, the students will also participate in seminars, workshops, and research and clinical training. They will also be provided with free MCAT and GRE preparation.

Students must have a 3.5 grade-point average and a 1,340 SAT or 30 ACT score to be eligible for the program. A preference will be given to students from disadvantaged socioeconomic who are interested in studying health disparities.
