Thank you for all your hard work!"  – Fourth-year medical student

"ACU’s Biology Department prepared me well to face the challenges of a graduate program. I felt equipped not only in the educational/knowledge skills but also in my work ethic and discipline."  – Physician assistant

"I believe ACU did a wonderful job of preparing me for medical school. My anatomy, cell biology, physiology, immunology and botany classes were all superb! Thank you all for your care and persistence with us!"  – Fourth-year medical student

"I felt well prepared for medical school through my ACU training. I was equipped to learn and adjust to new teaching styles. Advanced biology courses at ACU (cell biology, physiology, immunology, human anatomy, biomedical ethics) were particularly helpful in medical school.  Continue to equip students with the ability to learn and understand how minute details plug into the big picture."  – Physician
