Premedical

Prepare To Excel.

Small classes, close relationships with professors, research and internship opportunities, and the option to explore interests beyond medicine appeal to many students who anticipate spending at least seven years after college singularly focused on the study of medicine.

The Washington College Premedical Program guides students interested in pursuing a career in medicine. If you are interested in becoming an allopathic physician (an M.D.), an osteopathic physician (a D.O.), a dentist, a podiatrist, an optometrist, or a veterinarian, the Premedical Committee will help guide you through the process.

  • Christopher Smith ’07 is a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery in the U.S. Air Force.

    As a captain in the U.S. Air Force, Christopher Smith ’07 is completing his dentistry education in one of the top oral surgery residencies in the country, helping repair the trauma suffered by veterans and civilians alike.
