Pre-professional programs prepare students for graduate studies in medicine and allied health professions

All graduate health programs require a basic foundation of science, social science and humanities courses, which are requisite to professional programs in the health fields At Drew, we offer those basic courses geared to building a foundation for graduate/professional school in the health professions, and we advise students on how to navigate those courses in order to prepare for acceptance into graduate/professional programs specific to their goals.

Nearly all Drew University pre-med students with sufficiently strong grades and Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores have been accepted into medical school. The same is true of veterinary, dental and optometry school admissions.

Drew’s robust advising program provides support from the moment you set foot on campus, right through the medical school application process.

Pre-med students also have the rare opportunity to conduct research alongside top veteran scientists from industry, the only program of its kind in the nation, and pursue hands-on independent research during the ever-popular Drew Summer Science Institute.
