Health & Medicine Profile


We are the best in the world at providing an exceptional academic education in a Christ-centered environment. 

Whether you dream of becoming a health care professional, a cutting-edge medical researcher, or a science professor, Abilene Christian University will prepare you for a successful career.

Those students interested in health and medicine can apply to enter the Body & Soul Program at ACU, which further prepares students for entry into health-related professional schools through cocurricular programs like shadowing, professional school visits, health organizations, Christian mentorship, test preparation, and mock interviews. 

More than 80% of ACU students who apply for admission to medical and dental schools are accepted, a rate double the national average. 

This success is attributed to the personal academic commitment of ACU students, as well as excellent support from dedicated professionals who encourage students to pursue ministry through the practice of medicine, dentistry, and other health professions.

Here you will be challenged intellectually while developing spiritually, all in preparation for successful Christian service and leadership. We want to be a place where you can grow in your faith and come to better understand who Jesus is and what He’s called you to do. Be a part—and discover how your life and work can make a real difference in the world.
