Science in service to humanity in medicine, dentistry, and other health professions is a tradition at Creighton. The scientific and social challenges of today and tomorrow demand not only excellent professional training but also intellectual versatility, firmness of values, and commitment to lifelong learning, which lie at the heart of Creighton’s undergraduate liberal education. For reasons such as these, health professions schools prefer applicants who have completed an undergraduate degree with a broad general education before entering professional school. In evaluating the applicants, consideration will be given to all of the qualities considered to be necessary including intellectual curiosity, emotional maturity, honesty, proper motivation, and proven scholastic ability.
