Prepared for Success

Pre-med students at UW-Eau Claire are strongly encouraged to study what they love and discover their “power of AND.” Pre-med is not an academic major, so students major where their passions lie and are encouraged to seek a well-rounded college experience. Medical schools emphasize science aptitude, and they expect good communication skills and significant health related and service experiences. UW-Eau Claire has strong programs and opportunities that help students develop those skills and get the experiences they need to exceed those expectations of medical school. Courses in biology and chemistry, both very strong programs at UW-Eau Claire, are at the core of the pre-med requirements. Students also benefit from four major medical facilities in the region that provide the area with not only state-of-the-art quality health care, but also volunteer, shadowing, and job opportunities.

Graduates of UW-Eau Claire are highly successful in gaining admission to medical school. The majority of UW-Eau Claire graduates attend the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Medical College of Wisconsin, or the University of Minnesota Medical School in the Twin Cities. Others attend various private medical schools or schools of osteopathic medicine all around the country.
