Planning to enter a career in the healthcare professions? You can declare a pre-professional emphasis in one of our many pre-health areas. Pre-health is the umbrella term that encompasses health-related professions including medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, veterinary medicine, nursing, and more. Because a pre-professional emphasis is not a major, you can add a pre-health emphasis to any major. Pre-health advisors will work with you to ensure you are completing the prerequisite courses needed for your specific type of health-related graduate program.
