Kings High School Juniors accepted to TAP MD Program | Schools
KINGS MILLS, OH (FOX19) - Kings High School juniors Casey Ryan and Kyle Palmer have just been accepted into the prestigious TAP MD program with the Greater Cincinnati Health Council (GCHC).
The TAP MD program is designed to find untapped and talented high school students who are interested in pursuing a career in medicine. The program helps students figure out if medicine is the right career choice for them, and what aspects of medicine they prefer.
Casey and Kyle applied for the program because they are interested in becoming doctors but aren’t quite sure which field they want to work in. Kyle thinks he would like to become a pediatrician. Casey is interested in anesthesiology and medical research. Both were very excited and surprised to find out they made it into the program.
The GCHC has high standards when it comes to getting into the TAP MD program. Candidates must meet high academic requirements including an ACT score of at least 29 and/or SAT score of 1300. After minimum test scores are met, other criteria such as grade point average, letters of recommendations, advanced placement and college coursework are also considered.
The first meeting for TAP MD is in January. Those accepted to the program will meet once a month, visiting various hospitals and offices throughout Cincinnati.
