Newman students accepted into medical school

Nine Newman University senior students who applied for admission to medical school were recently notified that they have been accepted. The event marks a record for the number of students from Newman University to be accepted in the same academic year.

Seven of the students — Jesse Gray, Nicholas Ojile, Anna Scheuffele, Christopher Stanley, Cole Gillenwater, Caleb McCormick, and Cooper Stewart — will begin their studies at the University of Kansas School of Medicine next fall. Senior T.V. Nguyen was accepted by the Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, Colo. Chad Michler was accepted in the biomedical sciences program at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Mo., which leads to the doctor of osteopathic medicine program there.

Over the past 10 years, 96 percent of Newman students who successfully completed the university’s pre-med program and received positive recommendation from Newman’s Pre-medical Committee have been accepted into medical schools, university officials said.
