After graduating from CCU and finishing medical school, the Cleveland Clinic extended Dr. Ben Siebert '03, an internship in general surgery. This multispecialty center is regarded as one of the top four hospitals in the United States.
Pre-Medical Profession "Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.”
- Hippocrates of Cos, ancient Greek physician and outstanding figure in the history of medicine (460-370 BC.)
The Pre-Medical Profession program at CCU is encouraged if you’re interested in advanced study in medicine, including osteopathic, chiropractic, podiatric, dentistry, and optometry, as well as other professional or graduate programs. If your desire is to gain admittance into any medical school, we strongly recommend that you are fully aware of the courses you are required to take during your undergraduate experience.
Any major from Colorado Christian University is designed to equip you with the skills and abilities needed to gain admittance into graduate school. That includes a variety of medical schools or para-medical graduate programs, which allow you to pursue a career in the medical field. However, if your plan is to attend medical school after graduation, we have crafted the Pre-Medical Profession program to specifically provide a strong foundation for our students who intend to pursue post-graduate study in medicine.
Pre-Medical Profession In the Christian University
CCU offers all of the science classes that are necessary to give pre-med students a strong foundation for success in medical school. The pre-med major prepares students to articulate and defend a Christian perspective on ethical and controversial issues in science and recognize the importance of these skills in Christian service. In addition, you're provided with ample opportunities to participate in missions and ministry experiences that give you a competitive advantage when applying for medical school -- not to mention a more holistic worldview and exposure to God's creation.

I try to teach all science in reverence of this verse: "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."
