Are you service-oriented, compassionate, interested in health and human body issues, and committed to academic excellence? The Pre-Professional Health Sciences (PPHS) Program at EMU can help you develop into a skilled health care professional.
Most PPHS students are biology majors, but you could decide to major in chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics or an area in the liberal arts. Because graduate schools value a broad education, we recommend a minor in a non-science area that interests you.
