Pre-Health Professions

  • EDNA STEELE, adviser

Department of Biology, Chemistry and Physics Pre- Health Professions Programs are designed to assist students planning to attend medical, dental, and veterinary schools. They also assist students who have interests in physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant programs and other health-oriented careers. Students are provided assistance in course selection so as to tailor their academic experience to the requirements of the various programs. Students are also encouraged to participate in related internship experiences.

These programs are not majors. Although most pre-health professions students major in biology, chemistry, or biochemistry, these programs are open to students with any major. The programs do not appear on a student’s academic record. Students in these programs seek the advice of the adviser or someone designated by the adviser, and they research the entrance requirements for specific programs.
