Notre Dame Prepares Students for the Commitment, the Scholarship and the Challenge of a Career in Medicine

Good health. It’s a luxury many of us take for granted every day. For health care professionals, this ideal inspires a lifelong commitment to patient-centered care.

At Notre Dame, one in every ten undergraduates goes on to attend medical school. These pre-med students receive training that prepares them for the challenges of the profession, motivating a commitment to scholarship and love of learning that remains with them throughout their career.

Students like Katie Washington, valedictorian of the class of 2010, obtain valuable skills through undergraduate research activities at the Eck Institute for Global Health, learning to use science and medicine as tools to help create a healthier and more just world.

What Would You Fight For?

The University of Notre Dame’s award-winning “What Would You Fight For?” series, now in its seventh season, showcases the work, scholarly achievements, and global impact of Notre Dame faculty, students, and alumni. These two-minute segments, each originally aired during a home football game broadcast on NBC, highlight the University’s proud moniker, the Fighting Irish, and tell the stories of the members of the Notre Dame family who fight to bring solutions to a world in need.
