Case Western Reserve University students are serious about success
Case Western Reserve University offers more than 100 academic programs, including majors and advising in Nursing and Biomedical Engineering as well as Pre-medical and Pre-dental Medicine tracks. What’s more, Case Western Reserve students are admitted to the University as a whole—rather than individual schools or majors—giving them flexibility to study across the spectrum of academic programs.
Nursing students spend more than 1,400 hours in clinical placements—almost double the national average. Biomedical Engineering majors design working prototypes, making the hypothetical real. And pre-professional students bring their classroom learning to life by working in research labs and clinical settings. The CWRU Nursing School is a direct-admit program, meaning as soon as students arrive on campus, they begin their Nursing courses—and just three weeks later, they begin clinical placements at our local hospital affiliates.
The research opportunities available to undergraduates at Case Western Reserve—in terms of lab equipment and brainpower—are unparalleled. More than 80% of CWRU undergraduates take part in research or creative endeavors, like conducting experiments on campus, at the medical school, and at neighboring facilities. Hard work is rewarded at CWRU—you could become a published author with research results reported in some of the country’s most prized academic journals, even as an undergraduate.
CWRU Health Science students find ample opportunities to help society and better their education. Volunteer activities around campus abound for Case Western Reserve undergraduates who are interested in health care careers both on campus and at Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center—each of which is within one mile of campus.
The highly selective Pre-professional Scholars Program offers conditional admission to Case Western Reserve’s School of Dental Medicine or School of Medicine—a top 25 medical research school—along with undergraduate admission. Applications for the eight-year Medicine and seven-year Dental Medicine programs are due December 1.
