CU Denver’s pre-health curriculum prepared me to become a doctor.


Will's Moment

As a kid, Will M. watched his father work as a healer in their community, as people regularly came to his dad’s trailer for help. Will thought of his dad as a “doctor”—until he learned that this father had never attended medical school or college. But that connection to healing sparked an interest that helped propel Will to CU Denver, where, in a classroom, he listened to a professor talk about health equity and social justice and something coalesced. He wasn’t facing an either/or career decision. He realized that he could be a doctor and create change in his community. 

My journey exemplifies the power of embracing your roots, while aiming for your future. Now it’s your turn: Meet your moment at CU Denver.

Easy to Apply

Applying for college can seem like a full-time job, but Will appreciated that CU Denver offered a different experience. “CU Denver made it really easy to submit an application,” Will said. “Most importantly, it really streamlined the financial aid process for me. I grew up in a very underserved community and money was always an issue, so I was very limited to how I could apply to colleges. And, thankfully, CU Denver made it easy to apply for their fee assistance program.”

From Student to Doctor 

The high-quality, pre-health track at CU Denver set a course for Will to apply to medical school at CU Anschutz, which is part of the University Colorado System, along with CU Denver. “From excellent professors to academic guidance, I had valuable support at every point to help me earn a degree,” Will said.
