While your academic achievements can advance your scientific knowledge, you’ll need a special mix of experience and insider know-how to prepare for your life’s work.

At Case Western Reserve University, you’ll find hands-on preparation paired with mentorship from the very beginning.


  • Even before you arrive on Case Western Reserve’s campus, we’ll work individually with you to refine your path. Every student has a success team—your go-to people who help you start your first year off right and access resources and opportunities that advance your goals throughout your time at CWRU.


  • Our prime location at the center of three world-renowned hospitals—University Hospitals, Cleveland Clinic, Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center and a fourth just a few miles from campus, MetroHealth—offer unparalleled early access to real-world clinical exposure and research.


  • As early as your first semester, our undergraduate research office links you to research projects across the community and within the university, including the School of Medicine—a U.S. News & World Report top-25 medical school. CWRU undergraduates routinely appear as authors on papers published in top scientific journals.

I’m so excited for you to take your first step. Your path from here: med school, grad school, career are all in plain sight.
