The medical field is becoming more and more technical – and needs innovative students who can understand emerging technologies and procedures. That’s right – Kettering does pre-med for the real world. Small classes, state-of-the-art facilities, volunteering opportunities, pre-med advising, and co-op that starts in your first year – it is no surprise that our pre-med students are the ones medical schools want most.

  • 1 year of General Chemistry
  • 1 year of Organic Chemistry
  • 1 year of Biology
  • ½ year of Biochemistry
A student works as a medical scribe with a doctor at a local hospital.

Physician Scribes

Physician Scribes is a joint co-op program between Flint's Hurley Medical Center and Kettering University. Physician Scribes, or medical scribes, provide technical support and training for medical professionals using an electronic medical record system. While on rounds with doctors, the scribe's role is to enter the details of the patient encounter into the hospital’s records system, freeing up the physician’s time to focus on the patient.
