Pre-med Resources on Campus
Pre-med students at George Fox have the opportunity to join the local chapter of the American Medical Student Association, a student-governed national organization committed to connecting pre-med students with resources that will help prepare them for medical school. In addition, there are opportunities to work as a teaching assistant or gain internship experience both on and off campus.
Our biology and chemistry professors actively conduct research in onsite and offsite research laboratories, providing our undergraduate majors the opportunity to participate and present the results.
Students in George Fox’s biology major, for instance, have gained valuable research experience alongside professor John Schmitt, whose breast cancer research project, “Vitamin D Regulation in Breast Cancer Cells,” has received more than $75,000 in grant funding from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust.
