Research

Even as an undergraduate, you will have the opportunity to conduct original medical research at Corban. Health science students work alongside faculty to research a range of scientific and medically-relevant topics. This research is funded by external foundations, alumni and business stakeholders, and university grants.

Students then present their research at Corban’s Annual Science Symposium and other conferences in the Pacific Northwest. Some students have even had their work published! Most pre-med students have to wait until graduate school for this type of hands-on research experience, so you’ll have a significant advantage heading into medical school.

Medicine provides a unique opportunity to address the physical needs of people and also share the life-giving truth of the gospel. Every spring, health science students participate in a medical mission trip to remote villages in Haiti. Students work alongside physicians and nurses to serve and care for some of the neediest people in the world.
