Becoming a Difference Maker
“The Center for Pre-Health Professions is preparing me for medical school. They do an awesome job of connecting all of us to resources and providing flexibility to fulfill our requirements while gaining experience. There’s really something to be said for having the second advisor through CPHP to look over my shoulder and assist in any way they can.”

There are few fields that bring you closer to understanding the intricacies of God’s handiwork and the building blocks to life than those that take you through microscopes into the greater worlds beyond and back to serve others through knowledge and care.
Set on Success
CPHP helps you build a strong portfolio toward applying to professional schools. We provide shadowing, surgery observation, medical missions, professional school visits, mock interviews and entrance exam prep so you can reach your goals. For the past 10 years, 80% of our graduating professional school applicants have been accepted into their programs of choice.
Our faculty mentors lead a medical missions seminar about ethical travel and best practices in international service and relief. We then put it into practice through multiple medical mission trips.
Students work alongside health professionals with partner ministries in Guatemala, Peru or Denver to support medical outreach.
Summer-long medical mission internships are also available to learn first-hand about full-time medical mission work and develop future partnerships as they complete their professional training.
Participate in CPHP’s summer Global Healthcare Study Abroad program to Leipzig, Germany. You’ll study healthcare systems and the impact of culture, politics and poverty while observing in German clinics and hospitals. The history of the Reformation, the Holocaust and the fall of the Iron Curtain that divided East and West Germany provide a rich backdrop for examining your own cultural assumptions.
