Pre-Medical & Health Advising
Jump to a Section
DePauw students have gone on to prestigious medical and health programs from almost every major on campus. At DePauw there is no “pre-med major.” Students interested in pre-medical studies and other health professions can major in any field, so long as they fulfill the prerequisites for their specific program.
If you are interested in a career in medicine or other health-related field, it is important to set up a meeting with Ken Kirkpatrick, the Health Science Adviser, or a faculty member in the sciences. Click here to contact...
We offer numerous opportunities for students to engage with alumni and other professionals in medicine and health sciences. We also provide on-campus opportunities for MCAT test preparation and Emergency Medical Technician training. Click here to learn more...
Many medical and professional programs recommend students pursue internship and undergraduate clinical research opportunities as well as demonstrated community engagement. Please stop by the Kathryn F. Hubbard Center for Student Engagement for more information. We have helped our students secure internships at the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, the National Institute of Health, and Eli Lilly & Company, as well as many other programs.
DePauw recommends a minimum of fourteen and one-quarter courses in the sciences and mathematics for applicants to medical school and other health professional programs. We encourage students to begin chemistry early because there are a lot of required courses and some knowledge of chemistry is assumed in biology coursework.

Deb Jones, our career services director, gives advice in this article about turning internships into full-time jobs. http://t.co/Cx2bJpKVZe11 days ago
Eye-opening figure. It's important to remember that job search is more than submitting applications and resume. http://t.co/AQZwclA54l13 days ago
