CDU Pre-Medical Academy


Welcome to Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science Pre-Medical Academy.
We are excited to have you join us.

The CDU Pre-Medical Academy (PMA) is a selective and rigorous program designed to prepare undergraduate students to successfully gain admission to medical school, dental school, pharmacy school, veterinary school, podiatry school or optometry school. 

Students who are selected for participation in the CDU Pre-Medical Academy have decided that they want to enter the medical professions and fulfill their calling to serve humanity.  CDU PMA students possess a passion for social justice, patient advocacy, and agency demonstrated by their community service, and clinical and research experiences. 

Furthermore, they display leadership skills and the social and emotional maturity necessary to become exceptional, hard-working and compassionate healthcare providers.
