Sciences & Health Professions

Our office serves current students and alumni at all stages of their exploration of careers in health professions or sciences. We offer academic advising, resume and letter preparation for summer and postgraduate opportunities, and counseling during every step of the application process to a professional school. Preparation is key to success. Careful course selection, strategic research and/or clinical experiences, and meaningful service and leadership activities during and after Williams comprise the elements of successful applications to these programs.

Each year, about 50 Williams undergraduate students and alumni apply to medical schools. The three-year acceptance rate averages from 85-90%. In the 2017-18 admissions cycle, 38 of 44 (86% acceptance rate) matriculated to MD or DO programs; 3 (100%) to MD/PhD programs; and 3 (100%) to veterinary schools.
