Do you want to serve others through a medical profession? EMU can prepare you for advanced studies in your chosen health career with our pre-professional health program. Whether you want to go to medical school or pursue another health care profession, we can help you gain the experience and prerequisite courses you need to put together a high-quality application.
Our students have high acceptance rates to graduate school programs and medical school because of mentoring from our faculty, our unique emphasis on serving the whole person in medicine, and our hands-on lab experiences, including cadaver dissection. Learn more about how we will prepare you for your career.
Pre-professional health is not a major. It is a set of courses that can be added to or integrated with a major. Most students choose to study biology, chemistry, biochemistry, or clinical lab sciences, but you may choose to major in any program at EMU as long as you complete the recommended courses for the program. Some students also choose to double-major in one of the sciences and a liberal arts interest such as Spanish, music, or psychology.
