Study abroad: A stand-out experience for your med school app

Students studying abroad

Developing a robust medical school application during your undergraduate years is key to entering a top medical program and fulfilling your goals of becoming a physician. At Case Western Reserve University, pre-med students are afforded unparalleled access to medical school advising, research, shadowing and even study abroad.

Why is study abroad important for future doctors? 

International experiences will set you apart on your med school applications. You’ll experience new cultures and ways of thinking and problem-solving. You’ll gain valuable “soft skills” like confidence, independence, resourcefulness, communication and more. (Plus, let’s be real, studying abroad can be a whole lot of fun.)
