Welcome to the Pre-Health Program!
The Pre-Health degree program at Northwest Nazarene University provides both a solid academic program for admission and success in medical school and a solid Christian education to prepare students for the challenging future of medicine. Small class sizes and an active pre-health preparation program guide students through the requirements for admission into medical school upon receiving their pre-health degree. Northwest Nazarene University has two cadavers, a male and female, used for pre-health degree majors interested in a hands-on jump start to the reality of medical school.
A recent study found that 47% of students in the nation that took the MCAT (Medical School Entrance Exam) matriculated into medical school. At NNU, our pre-health degree graduates' acceptance rate varies from year to year, but averages 93% over the last five years.
Come be guided by NNU's exceptional faculty and gain a competitive edge to medical school in our pre-health degree program.
