Are there any universities out with pre-med tracks like Emory's?

Hello! I've been pretty set on Emory because of their reputation for pre-med, but I'm starting to feel like I should have some backup options. I'm looking for schools that offer excellent pre-med advising and opportunities for research and volunteering in healthcare. Would appreciate any suggestions from you folks!

Hello there! It's smart to think about backup options, and I'm happy to help you brainstorm. Johns Hopkins University and Washington University in St. Louis are both well-respected for their pre-med tracks and offer extensive research and volunteering opportunities. Meanwhile, smaller liberal arts colleges like Amherst or Williams may not have the same level of name recognition in pre-health, but can provide excellent, personalized advising due to smaller class sizes, which also facilitates close relationships with faculty that can be advantageous for letters of recommendation and mentorship opportunities.

Additionally, flagship state schools like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Washington, and the University of Michigan also boast strong pre-med advising and numerous hospitals nearby for volunteering. Consider researching these schools further and see which aligns best with your criteria for strong pre-med support and opportunities. Good luck with your applications!
