Pre-Professional Student Resources


What does it mean to be “Pre-Health” at UP?

Being a pre-health student means that in addition to your major requirements, you are also completing the pre-requisite coursework and extracurricular work to apply to a professional health program such as medical school or dental school after your time at UP. There is no such thing as a pre-health major or a pre-med major so the good news is you can major in anything you want! Professional health programs admit students from a variety of majors every year with no preference shown to any particular area.

Here at UP, we have two Pre-Health advisors that can help you determine how to fit in the extra pre-requisite coursework for any professional health program with your major choice. We can also help you figure out what kinds of extracurricular activities you should be doing while you are a student to help you with that professional school application later on.

Below, we have Pre-Requisite Worksheets for each of the health professions for which we advise (PDF). Please note that these worksheets list the general pre-requisite courses for each area. Students should always double check the specific pre-requisites for the programs they are applying to in order to ensure all of their coursework is completed prior to application. UP can advise students on the following pre-health requirements:

Pre-Physical Therapy
Pre-Occupational Therapy
Pre-Veterinary Medicine
Pre-Physician Assistant
