Overview   |   Meet An Earlhamite   |   The Program  


Earlham has long history of preparing students for careers in medicine and related health professions. Our alumni have medical school acceptance rates of approximately 87 percent, and recent graduates have enrolled in many of the nation’s leading medical schools including Harvard, Chicago, Dartmouth, Yale, Johns Hopkins and Michigan. Alumni have attended veterinary school at Purdue, Ohio State and University of California at Davis. Others have studied public health at Notre Dame, Northwestern and Johns Hopkins.

Why Earlham?

Medical schools appreciate the well-rounded academic preparation that Earlham’s liberal arts curriculum offers, and look favorably on our students’ tendency to pursue multiple passions — from community service, to the arts, to athletics. Pre-med and pre-health students at Earlham benefit from faculty guidance for test preparation, as well as Earlham’s connections to many alumni in the medical and research fields.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
