Pre-Professional Health Sciences

Missy Solanki

“At EMU I built a solid foundation in the sciences, a real asset in the graduate studies I was to pursue.”

Pre-Professional Health Sciences

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.

Currently, there is a shortage of health care professionals in most areas; 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.

Our undergraduate program emphasizes cross-cultural awareness, critical thinking skills, quality academics and Christian empathy, preparing students for entrance into graduate-level health professional programs.

While most PPHS students are biology majors, it is possible to major in chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics or an area in the liberal arts and still succeed in the program at EMU. Because graduate schools value a broad education, a minor in a non-science area of interest is suggested.
