PreMed is a huge word. It encompasses all of the pre-professional programs at IWU: Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Medicine, Pre-Occupational Therapy, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, and Pre-Veterinary. This program covers so much because each of these professions requires a broad background in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics.
The Indiana Wesleyan University Pre-Medical Science program is not a major; rather, it is a program label that allows the faculty to carefully track your progress as you prepare for one of the aforementioned professions. Each of these professions requires significant education beyond your undergraduate years. IWU has a great record of placing our senior students in graduate programs around the country. To accomplish this, we carefully advise and mentor you as you progress through the courses that make up the PreMed program.
PreMed is rigorous. Our alumni who are pursuing graduate studies report to us that they are among the best-prepared in their programs. Many graduate in the top 10% of their class and are selected for prestigious residency programs.
If you feel called to one of the health professions and are serious about learning, then PreMed might be for you.
