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.

Every student has a navigator—your go-to person who stays with you your entire time here, helping you start the first year off right by accessing resources and opportunities.
  • Practice: Our prime location at the center of three world-renowned hospitals—University HospitalsCleveland ClinicCleveland VA Medical Center and a fourth just a few miles from campus, MetroHealth—offer unparalleled early access to real-world clinical exposure.
  • 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—the 24th-ranked medical school in the nation. Undergraduates routinely appear as authors on papers published in top scientific journals.
