We believe the reimbursement met our goal of encouraging students in our community who are considering a career in medicine. Therefore, we decided to continue the reimbursement this year. It is our pleasure to help offset part of the cost of the MCAT fees for these students.”

Ten students from Northern Kentucky University and three students from Thomas More College received the reimbursement.
