World-class physicians from world-class students
#1 choice of top-notch students
Seven. That's how many medical schools Jessica "Jess" Dawson, 21, was accepted to after graduating summa cum laude from American University with a bachelor's in biology and a bachelor's in business administration. As a highly desirable medical school candidate (who turned down interviews), Jess had her pick of medical schools across the country, including a prominent one on the East Coast. In the end, her choice was easy.
Jess, and many others, chose the UW School of Medicine, which was recently ranked No. 1 in the country for matriculation by U.S. News & World Report's Best Graduate Schools "Short List." This is where medical school candidates want to come, and Jess, now in her first year, knows the many reasons why.
