"Mount Union's Pre-Health Program offers a strong science foundation, personalized guidance, and an organized schedule that kept me on track throughout undergrad. I am grateful for the knowledge I gained while at Mount Union because it prepared me for the rigorous coursework I have encountered while at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. As a Mount Union Pre-Health graduate, I was more prepared than many of my peers and am successfully moving towards my goal of becoming a Podiatric Physician."
