Student in lab

Within two years of graduation, 78 percent of Case Western Reserve University students who applied to medical school were enrolled in medical school. The national acceptance rate for all medical schools? Just 40 percent, according to the Princeton Review.

What’s more, the CWRU grads are in some of the nation’s most notable programs:

  • Duke University
  • Emory University
  • Harvard University
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • New York University
  • University of Michigan
  • Yale University

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), with plenty of opportunities for volunteering and shadowing

Add in professional pre-health advising and an office dedicated to undergraduate research

Round it out with student groups like the student-run emergency medical assistance group; an organization benefiting children undergoing craniofacial procedures; and a group working to find sustainable solutions to health concerns around the world.
