Medical School Fast Track
Through an agreement with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, five spots in medical school are reserved each year for qualified Heidelberg students to directly enroll in the program.
For students interested in medical school, working with cadavers is a huge advantage. Heidelberg's cadaver labs gives you the opportunity to dissect a cadaver as well as practice specialty dissections of knees, the spinal cord, eyeballs, larynxes, and brains. You’ll also have access to disarticulated human skeletons and other helpful study options.
