Pre-Med Studies at EMU Time and again, EMU pre-med graduates report discovering they are better prepared than their counterparts in graduate school. In fact, over the past decade, over 80% of students who completed EMU’s pre-medical program were accepted into med school. EMU graduates credit our small class sizes, professors who nurtured them as individuals, and an environment that fostered personal growth and reflection about values, in addition to academic rigor. Hands-on learning and research collaboration EMU’s cadaver dissection program is one example of ‘academic rigor’ that accounts for exceptional preparation for graduate school. EMU is one of the few colleges in the state that offers a cadaver lab for undergraduate study and research. Hands-on original research along-side faculty members provides further preparation that puts EMU graduates ahead of many peers in graduate school. Some students publish their findings or present to professional societies. Research collaboration helps students identify interests and enhance critical and creative thinking skills. Other real-world learning occurs when students get involved in the local community, perhaps shadowing a physician, volunteering at a clinic, or working in a hospital or nursing home as a technician or nursing assistant. Liberal arts and cross-cultural focus Our broad liberal arts foundation also prepares graduates in unique ways. EMU core values include cross-cultural understanding and respect. Interfaith and inter-cultural dialogues and relationships are valued within the campus community. Cultural understanding can be an important selection criterion in gaining admission to medical school or other graduate programs. The quality of the teaching... [-]
