It’s Flashback Friday!
Each Friday, we will include historical facts about the college in The Dome, on Facebook and Twitter. Flashback Fridays are another part of our yearlong Sesquicentennial celebration, which culminates in 2020 when Canisius turns 150 years old.
Today, we flashback to February 1991 when Canisius’ strong tradition of educating students in the sciences became more firmly cemented with the opening of the Dr. George E. Schreiner Pre-Medical Center. Established by the internationally-renowned nephrologist and 1943 alumnus, the Schreiner Pre-Med Center was an innovative concept for its time and remains so today, as it trains and supports Canisius students via professional advisement, a distinguished seminar series and scholarship assistance. In its latter years, the center developed a Health Science Advisory and Recommendation Committee. Comprised of medical professionals, deans and department chairs, this committee has become a national model for medical school recommendation procedures.
