In addition to having a strong academic record, successful applicants to medical school need to demonstrate a wide range of intangible criteria, including a demonstrated interest in medicine, maturity and good character, altruism, and the ability to work with people different from themselves.

At Goucher, we provide the comprehensive coursework and scientific background necessary for professional and graduate school in the health professions, but we also stress the intellectual discipline and problem-solving skills necessary for careers that require life-long learning.

We believe our success in placing students into professional schools-at rates two or three times the national average-comes from positioning our pre-professional education in the context of the humanities and social sciences. This context helps develop not only an appreciation of the human experience and cultural differences, but also compassionate practitioners who communicate effectively and deliver the best care to patients from a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, and family situations.
