Geneva’s biology program prepares students for entry into allopathic or osteopathic medical schools and into professional schools of dental, veterinary, podiatric, optometric and chiropractic medicine. The biology curriculum plus additional coursework in chemistry and English enable a student to meet entrance requirements for medical school as well as to sit for the MCAT, DAT, VAT, GRE, or OAT exams.
Geneva graduates that apply for entrance to medical school have been accepted over 80% of the time, well above the national average. The MCAT preparation class exposes pre-medical students to an intense two-semester review curriculum and to at least three full-length MCAT practice exams prior to taking the actual MCAT.
Recent Geneva graduates have been accepted into medical schools such as The University of Pittsburgh, Ohio University, Thomas Jefferson University, Southern Illinois University and Temple University.
Geneva College was selected to join the Undergraduate Microbial Genome Annotation Program, an initiative of the Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute (JGI).
