Top Bachelor Degrees 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 or other graduate programs. The quality of the teaching at EMU was fantastic for many reasons. -Dr. Chad Denlinger ’96 A state-of-the-art cadaver lab in Suter Science Center provides students with the right tools to get the hands-on experience needed to learn about the human body. -Wally Al-Kakhan, MA in biomedicine ’15 [-]

Top Bachelor Degrees in North America 2017. The Biology Major seeks to prepare students for careers in the exciting areas of health professions, scientific research, and environmental studies. In light of the constant new breakthroughs in genomics, medicine, molecular biology research, and "green" technology, Greenville College is committed to facilitate the advance of the students to the highest levels of knowledge and technical skills so that they may make a significant contribution to their chosen fields, and to honor the Creator in their vocations. Our Biology Major demands comprehensive exposure to the entire field yet allows the flexibility to emphasize your particular interest. You may concentrate your studies in environmental biology, laboratory research, and secondary education in biology or graduate or professional school preparation. Students on a research track have the opportunity to publish a paper by their senior year. Research areas include studies in cell growth, DNA expression, botany, parasitology and recombinant DNA technology. Biology also offers a prep class for those interested in taking the GRE exam for graduate school admission. Greenville professors are committed to providing an academic learning environment that allows you to thrive and grow into a highly competent professional. Course work is rigorous and you'll take the same courses as those designed for majors in each of the science disciplines. There are no abbreviated courses simply to meet minimum professional-school requirements.

The biology courses should include cell biology, microbiology, and physiology. Courses that aid the student in communication are highly recommended. The dietitian needs several behavioral science courses since much of their role is often motivating people to change their life patterns of eating. Students will need to leave Greenville after a year or two, or plan to pursue that career in a graduate program. Pre-Medical Technology The pre-medical technology training must include courses in biology and microbiology, and 3 years of chemistry.
