Set Yourself Apart
Getting into medical school requires you to show you’ve completed the necessary pre-requisite courses — as well as the drive to succeed and a plan to get there. That plan comes from thorough preparation during your undergraduate career. Guilford gives you a distinct advantage with exceptional preparation and mentoring that leads to strong acceptance rates.
As a Pre-Medicine student at Guilford you may major in any discipline, including Health Sciences, as long as you complete the necessary pre-requisite courses for medical school. You will work closely with your advisers to design an individualized course of study. This allows you to complete the required science and social science courses to prepare for you for admission to your chosen medical program.
Health Science majors also take the Health Science Seminar, a course designed to help you with the graduate school application process, from preparing your personal statement to interview tips and financial planning. During the course, Guilford alumni who are currently in or recently graduated from graduate programs in the health professions often come back to share their experiences with current students. This class should be taken the spring before you plan to apply to medical school.
