The American Medical Association strongly suggests that today's prospective applicants to medical school seek a strong liberal arts background--precisely the education Ohio Wesleyan provides. Fostering both breadth and depth, our curriculum gives the student the best possible undergraduate preparation for many of the health professions.

At Ohio Wesleyan you will find both the core courses that meet the requirements for health professional schools, and the opportunity and encouragement to go far beyond these basics. This tradition of combining challenge with opportunity is the foundation of our extraordinary record of sending generations of students toward productive careers in the health professions.

The role of the Health Professions Advising Office is 3-fold:

Information Source: Provides information about many aspects of the preparation and application processes personally, on paper and/or via the Internet.

Advising / Counseling: Helps students evaluate options and make decisions; assists students in examining their interests, skills and abilities in light of admissions realities; reviews and makes suggestions on applications, choices of schools and other pertinent issues.

Evaluation: Participates in evaluation of students applying to medical and dental schools and prepares composite evaluation letters.
