About Our Program

Tabor College science and math students work closely with professors in classroom study as well as guided independent research. Our hands-on approach to learning provides excellent preparation for graduate school or for work in industry, education or health professions. Over 90 percent of our pre-med graduates are accepted into medical school.

General & Thoracic Surgery Fellow

“My education at Tabor provided me with great understanding of the Bible and how to communicate this understanding to others. Part of medicine is accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, but an even bigger part is healing the soul. There are many different external ways to make someone’s body function better, but all of this is for naught if the soul is broken. My professors and classmates at Tabor constantly challenged me and demonstrated the importance of a servant’s heart. Without service, our words are far less effective and empty.”
