Pre-Professional Health Sciences
Pre-Professional Health Sciences (PPHS) at EMU is designed for students who wish enter careers in health science such as medicine, physical therapy, or other similar health related careers.
Students who are service-oriented, compassionate, interested in health and human body issues, and academically competent can develop into skilled health care professionals.
Our undergraduate program emphasizes quality academics and Christian empathy and prepares students for entrance into graduate level health professional programs.
Currently, there is a shortage of health care professionals in most areas and during the next decade the U.S. Department of Labor projects a growth of more than 25% in the health care industry, meaning more new jobs than any other industry.

- PPHS Handbook
