Primary Healthcare Advancement Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors, Minors and Other Academic Programs

While maintaining the traditional support that Baldwin Wallace provides all pre-medical students, the Primary Healthcare Advancement Program is an exclusive pre-med pathway linked with the Public Health Major to especially foster support and guidance to undergraduate students, focusing on the significance of primary care medicine.  It is academically selective and provides an educational environment cultivating a deeper understanding of the medical field in general, as well as the promotion of health and the prevention of disease.  It also sharpens the additional skills necessary for the new Medical College Admissions Test, and provides communications with practicing primary care physicians.  The program consists of the curriculum of the Public Health Major  and the Comprehensive Healthcare Science Curriculum.  The goal is to specially guide and counsel students regarding the increasing importance of primary care medicine within our changing healthcare system, and provide a longitudinal curriculum linked with primary care medical school programs.
