Pre Medical Students: An Overview
The preparation for a career in medicine is not intuitive. Accurate information, guidance, and strategies—all are critical to be a successful premedical student. The COEDME provides a point of access to opportunities, programs, and activities that will help guide students in their preparation for a career in a health profession. Students access higher education through a variety of pathways including community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, public and private institutions. Each of these pathways varies in quality and quantity of information and guidance relative to pursuing a health professions career. In many instances these pathways reflect more on opportunity than talent. Therefore, the goal of this website is to provide students information and opportunities that will assist them, regardless of their academic pathway, to be successful candidates.
