The goal of AMEC is to train osteopathic physicians who will work in underserved regions of Alabama. Students interested in Family Practice, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology are encouraged to apply. AMEC is a dynamic partnership between The University of West Florida, 20 Alabama Colleges and Universities and 10 Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine. AMEC is a clearing house for admissions for qualified graduates from these schools into the osteopathic schools listed below. AMEC has dedicated 10 slots for qualified UWF students at partner osteopathic schools.
Partner Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine:
Prospective students apply to the schools of their choice from the above list. AMEC staff will assist interested applicants who wish to apply through the AMEC program. Based on the admission criteria specified by the osteopathic school of medicine to which the student is seeking admission, selection for the program is made by the Admissions committee of AMEC. AMEC endorses qualified applicants, most of whom are accepted by a college of medicine.
Students can be identified early in their UWF career as well, for a fast track admission to medical school. Talk to your UWF pre-professional advisor for more details.
