Pre-Professional & Cooperative Program
Mary Jane Shroyer, Pre-Health Coordinator
Judith Thorn, Biology
Students interested in the medical profession are well served by a liberal arts education. A liberal arts education at Knox combines preparation in the sciences with broad perspectives from the humanities and social sciences to address technical scientific and human interaction skills, both of which are required for successful careers in medicine.
Students interested in medicine are not restricted to any one major. Working with an advisor in the major, as well as Knox’s pre-health advisor, students complement their major with those courses which provide instruction in the sciences and other fields to adequately prepare them for admission to medical school. Students with this interest are urged to consult early with the pre-med advisor to ensure that their course selections are appropriate.
