- University of Rochester
Why are CWRU students so highly qualified for med school?
Start with a comprehensive university setting known for academic rigor, and strategically located in one of the nation’s most health care-packed neighborhoods (4 major medical institutions at your fingertips, including Cleveland Clinic, consistently ranked a top-5 hospital by U.S. News & World Report), with plenty of opportunities for volunteering and shadowing.
What’s more: professional pre-health advising and an office dedicated to undergraduate research.
Round it out with student groups like CWRU EMS, the student-run emergency medical assistance group; Craniofacial Club, an organization benefiting children undergoing craniofacial procedures; and Global Health Design Collaborative, a group working to find sustainable solutions to health concerns around the world.
Put it all together and— 💥BAM 💥—you have the makings of a successful medical school candidate.
