Pre-Professional Health Studies
Whitworth provides a strong foundation for students preparing for careers in the health professions. Dedicated professors offer interdisciplinary, hands-on training in all science fields, while Whitworth's strong liberal-arts curriculum provides students the broad knowledge base, critical-thinking and communication skills, and multicultural literacy to succeed in today's rapidly changing world. The science departments have recently received several significant grants from the National Science Foundation, NASA and the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trusts, allowing students to be involved in leading-edge research using state-of-the-art equipment ranging from sophisticated computers to research-grade infrared spectrophotometers and enzyme analyzers. These advantages have enabled Whitworth students to enroll in top medical, dental and graduate schools around the country and to pursue successful careers in the health professions.
