Parade magazine’s back-to-school survey in the August 22 issue and website included Emory on its A-list of colleges with excellent programs in the health sciences.
“Good health programs combine strong academic preparation with a hands-on approach and offer a wide variety of choice,” said the magazine.
“Emory University, a stand-out in health sciences, has the Centers for Disease Control virtually next door.”
Emory also made the A-list for its pre-med programs:
“At Emory, students interested in the field of medicine have the opportunity to gain first-hand exposure to the daily routine of the physician through their House Staff Assistant program. Students witness all aspects of the job and become integral parts of the medical team, which consists of attending physicians, resident physicians, and medical students.”
The list of outstanding schools was based on the recommendations of 43 top guidance counselors across the country.
