When it’s time to begin looking at medical schools or to pursue a professional degree in fields such as dentistry, pharmacy, PA, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, podiatry or optometry, you’ll be ready. As a pre-med student, you’ll receive expert guidance from our dedicated director of pre-health advising, who provides a wide variety of programming and one-on-one advisement to help you to identify and pursue clinical exposure, research and volunteer experiences. In the increasingly competitive world of medical school admissions, strategically working with a pre-health advisor is critical to your success.
The pre-med designation perfectly complements a variety of majors. The courses completed through the pre-med designation form an essential foundation for further study in the health professions. The courses can be completed along with almost any undergraduate major, allowing students to pursue a variety of academic interests while completing medical school prerequisites.
As a pre-med student, your life as an undergrad will go far beyond the classroom. Through on-campus clubs, research, local volunteer opportunities, and access to local hospitals, clinics, and other medical settings, you can easily get the experiences you need to be a competitive medical school candidate.
The pre-medical studies designation must be declared in addition to another degree and is not a stand-alone program.
