What makes a university good for pre-medical studies?
All things aren’t equal when it comes to pre-med programs!
First, you’ll want to check out the reputation of your school, its faculty and accreditation status. Find out if it has a strong science department with good lab facilities, and whether it offers the core classes needed for medical school.
Ask a counselor about the university’s track record for its students being accepted to medical schools. Finally, are there opportunities there for you to volunteer, and get involved in leadership and growth opportunities?
Hey, I know it’s only undergrad, but you’ll want to be in an environment where you can not just survive, but thrive. Bigger universities almost always offer the features mentioned above, but it’s not a given. And though a lot of smaller colleges are less steeped in the pre-med sciences, there are many with a solid reputation and commitment to preparing science/medical majors.
Just do your homework, before making that final decision!
