Pre-Med, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Veterinary

Programs in the natural sciences provide preparation for students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other health-related fields. Although entrance requirements may vary from school to school and from one health-related field to another, there are three general requirements requested by most professional schools which enhance the strength of a student's application: 

  1. a science-related degree with coursework in biology, chemistry, and mathematics; 
  2. a strong background in the liberal arts; 
  3. involvement in relevant and appropriate professional and volunteer activities. A strong score on the professional school entrance examination (such as the Medical College Admissions Test) is important for entry into most professional or graduate schools.
