Tomorrow’s health care professionals must be strong communicators and critical thinkers – in short, students who are driven, focused and realistic about the rigorous demands involved in pursuing a medical degree. Those are the students who enroll at Geneseo.

"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."
