The College of Wooster’s Pre-Health Advising Program prepares students to apply for medical school, dental school, veterinary school, and a host of other health-related graduate programs.

Pre-Health Advising sponsors personal advising and informational sessions, oversees shadowing experiences and health-related volunteer opportunities, and assists students with all aspects of their health career program applications.

See the HuffPost article mentioning our very own The College of Wooster’s Community Care Network and how our students serve the community!
