Info Form



We provide students with opportunities for research outside of a traditional classroom setting while at GC, working with our own faculty or receiving funding to work with researchers at other institutions, from Stanford University to the National Institutes of Health.


We have a long tradition of successfully preparing students for health professions. Over 90% of our students who complete the application process, including an interview, get accepted to medical school.

Grad Success

Our graduates have become world-class medical researchers, famous surgeons, professors of medicine—and, most importantly, they serve on the front lines of health care, as primary care physicians, pediatricians, dentists, and allied health professionals.

Program Requirements

No specific major is required, but all pre-medical fields will require a good foundation in the natural sciences, highly developed communication skills, and a solid background in the social sciences and humanities. Most students major in one of the sciences, usually biology, biochemistry, or chemistry. The entrance tests require excellent verbal reasoning skills, so a good background in English is also advised.
