Preprofessional Program in Medicine

Wartburg College
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Waverly

Pre-professional majors are tracks in undergraduate programs that prepare you for a professional degree after your bachelor’s. A pre-professional major is not a major in the traditional sense, it’s more of a track to follow. [+]

Pre-professional majors are tracks in undergraduate programs that prepare you for a professional degree after your bachelor’s. A pre-professional major is not a major in the traditional sense, it’s more of a track to follow. A faculty adviser will help you pick out the best courses and extracurricular activities to increase your chances of being admitted to your professional program of choice. Wartburg has stellar acceptance rates with top professional and graduate programs, but remember that just because you choose a pre-professional major and completed your plan, does not guarantee you admission to a professional program. Medical Science Medicine is science and practice of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences and research, genetics, and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease. Requirements Wartburg College provides the required preprofessional courses for students who intend to enroll in a professional school. In preprofessional study, some students earn a bachelor's degree with a major from Wartburg and then enroll at another institution. In other cases, students enter a professional program before completing the Wartburg College degree and then satisfy requirements for both the Wartburg degree and the professional degree. In most instances, the preprofessional program of study is not a major at Wartburg. Working with an academic adviser is very important when considering a preprofessional program. Generally required: BI 151 Biology I: Ecosystems, Cells, and Evolution BI 152 Biology II: Phylogeny, Structure, and Function CH 113 Principles of Chemistry I CH 114 Principles of... [-]

Top Bachelor Degrees in Medicine in North America 2017. 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... [-]
