As a student considering a career in medicine, you are driven to achieve. WPI offers support and opportunities to help you achieve greatly.
The advantages of a Pre-Medical education at WPI include the following:
- Seven-week terms that will prepare you for the fast-paced medical profession
- A project-enriched curriculum that will help you get ready to work on a team and solve challenging problems
- Many available research opportunities that will expose you to the methods, protocols, and instrumentation that you’ll encounter in the medical profession
- A Pre-Professional Academic Advising office that will help you manage everything from choosing the right courses through the process of applying to medical school.
Given the level of technology and the tremendous technology changes we see almost daily in virtually every medical discipline, I feel there is critical value in a pre-medical program that provides strength in science, engineering, and problem-solving skills.Raymond Dunn ’78, MD
