Pre-Medical

This year, three of our graduates have chosen to continue their education in medical school: Joe Andrie (The Pennsylvania State College of Medicine), Ethan Sellers (Jefferson Medical College) and DJ Verespy (The Commonwealth Medical College).

As a student in our pre-med program, you'll get a few things you won't find everywhere:

  • One-on-one student/faculty research - we don't have TAs that get in the way
  • Internships with one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation - Susquehanna Health System
  • A human cadaver lab with your anatomy classes
  • Opportunity to meet with current medical students, faculty and staff

As a part of our pre-medical program, you'll work closely with the Health Professions Advisory Council (HPAC). Dr. Edward Gabriel is the chair of HPAC and he is accompanied by four experts in biology, chemistry and psychology. Each of them work with you to build a four year plan tailored to your career of choice in medicine. Your plan is designed to increase your chances of getting accepted to the top professional schools and graduate programs in the United States.

Our alumni who have gone on to medical school have come from a variety of majors, but it's important to remember most medical schools require biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics and behavioral science courses.

Upon graduation from medical school, our alumni have gone on to become specialists in cardiology, radiology, pediatrics, orthopedics, family medicine, internal medicine and surgery.
