It's easy to see why Kenyon graduates are accepted into the finest medical, dental and veterinary schools in the country: They have taken rigorous academic coursework and have an incredible network of faculty who support them through the admission process. In recent years, our graduates have gained admission into Harvard, Dartmouth, Penn, the University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins and more.
Students can major in any field of study at Kenyon to prepare for medical school, as long as they complete several courses that medical schools require - such as organic chemistry and introductory biology. A liberal arts degree that helps students develop strong communication, logical-thinking, and decision-making skills often provides an advantage in the application process and in professional practice.
Kenyon employs a pre-medical advisor who helps students with all aspects of pre-medical study, from undergraduate course planning to completing professional school applications. With 15 to 20 students applying to medical, dental and veterinary school each year, Kenyon's professors and the pre-medical advisor can give each student individual attention and counseling.
Pre-medical and pre-health advising is not limited to medical, dental, and veterinary school preparation. Students who are interested in advanced study in physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, nursing and other allied health fields also work with the pre-medical advisor on a one-on-one basis to plan their course of study and complete the application process.
