Hippocrates Fellows will be enrolled in Chemistry and Molecular Biology during the summer registration period and are otherwise encouraged to take humanities courses related to their interest. Following the first year of academics, Fellows will take part in a Summer School Program consisting of both academic and clinical components.
For students with career goals in medicine, the designation as a Hippocrates Fellow brings with it a mark of distinction and special opportunities to ensure a strong start to the pre-medical experience at Sewanee during the freshman year and continued success beyond.
As a Hippocrates Fellow, you:
- Enroll in required pre-medical courses during your freshman year.
- Complete a fully-funded summer experience that includes curricular, internship, and leadership opportunities.
- Gain experience that makes you competitive for placement into A Career Exploration (ACE) medical internships in the summer after your sophomore year.
- Receive additional close advising from faculty, peers, and alumni.
