Pre-Health

Interested in health care but not sure which specialty? We have a program designed just for you! Some of the careers our students have chosen are medical physician, physician assistant, dentist, optometrist, pharmacist, physical therapist, and veterinarian.

As a student in our pre-health program, you'll get a few things you won't find everywhere:

  • One-on-one student/faculty research - we don't have TAs that get in the way
  • Internships with one of the top 100 hospitals in the nation - Susquehanna Health System
  • A human cadaver lab with your anatomy classes
  • Opportunity to meet with current medical students, faculty and staff

As a part of our pre-health program, you'll work closely with the Health Professions Advisory Council (HPAC). This council has five experts in biology, chemistry and psychology. They work with you to build a four year plan tailored to your health career of choice. Your plan is designed to increase your chances of getting accepted to the top professional schools and graduate programs in the United States.

Most of our pre-health students major in either chemistry or biology, but we welcome students of any major who have an interest in health care.
