First post, so please be gentle. I'm looking into Campbell for one of my schools in the 2018-2019 application cycle and I was just curious about this aspect of their program. I was surprised to learn that three of the programs I was considering in NC (Campbell, Methodist, Gardner-Webb) advertised themselves as "Faith-based" or "fostering a Christian environment". For those that have been through it, how much did religion influence the education? I'm not religious. I'm not anti-religious, but I am wary of a religious medical education. Campbell (et. al.) came up on my radar due to proximity and Prerequisite course requirements. Should I be looking elsewhere because of a heavy religious influence (i.e.- prayers before class, avoidance of the topic of evolution and genetics, etc) or am I reading way to much into a line in the school's Mission Statement? I am certainly not trying to start a fight or make enemies, just need some input to decide if these schools are not the right fit for me, or if I am overthinking this.
Thanks for any input!
