Pre-Med/Pre-Health Programs at Geneseo


Geneseo is a wonderful place to prepare for a career in medicine or allied health. We are ranked #12 in New York State in sending students to medical school ( data) and we are the only of the SUNY four-year comprehensive colleges to be on American Association of Medical College's list of "Schools that send more than 50 students a year to medical school."

Importantly, our students excel when they get to medical school because of the solid training they receive here and, of course, because of the hard work they do.

We endeavor to provide a challenging curriculum in a nurturing environment — with accessible professors using good and innovative teaching practices, a commitment to getting to know you and helping you reach your potential, student tutors, plenty of office hours, top-notch laboratory instrumentation, research opportunities, and advising along the way.

In addition to offering advising at each step of the way, Geneseo has several clubs that support students with interest in medical careers - a pre-vet club, a co-ed academic fraternity, (Phi Delta Epsilon), a Minority Association for Pre-health Students (MAPS), a pre-dental club and a pre-optometry club.  We also support an advising organization that was begun and is staffed by some of our very own alums (Project Short). We hope that you will give us a serious look. We'd love to meet with you and tell you more about the program and our cooperative programs with medical institutions.

"For me, Geneseo was the catalyst to my future career. Geneseo teaches you how to work hard for your goals. I was prepared for everything I have encountered because of the rigorous coursework and high standards. I couldn't imagine receiving a better education anywhere else."

- Jeffrey Senfield, MD, MS, cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist, Greenville, SC
