Students in Loyola's biology program benefit from hands-on laboratory experiences, research opportunities with faculty, and a robust curriculum. Together, these experiences create a holistic learning environment that prepares graduates for successful admission to graduate and professional schools or for direct entry into the field.
Loyola's Pre-Health Programs and the Pre-Med Track go so far beyond any other university, because this program embodies the Jesuit mission and a holistic education.
The faculty at Loyola are very supportive. They want to see their students succeed and will help work with you in any way possible to achieve your goals.
My passion is to serve the greatest number of people possible, providing the highest quality of care possible. This, in combination with my love of science and interest in biomedical research, led me to pre-med. For me, the idea of becoming a medical doctor encompasses these components that I desire in a career, while also providing me with the agency to tackle issues of public health, health care inequities, and social determinants of health care. Reflecting on these ideas, I found Loyola’s mission and values aligned perfectly with my own principles.
