Pre-Health Professions

Pre-Health Professions at UNA

This website is designed to help you get a better understanding of what lies ahead for you in your quest for a career in the Health Professions. Although many of the health professions recommend a major in either biology or chemistry, you can major in just about any discipline and matriculate to a health professions school.

All health professions schools evaluate candidates on their academic record, volunteer experience, shadowing experience, and scores on the appropriate standardized tests. Each student's journey to be a competitive candidate is unique. You need to keep your advisor current on your activities, etc. so that he/she can help you evaluate your progress.

Reading and following the instructions in the document, Pre-Health Essentials at UNA, is also critical to your being a competitive applicant.  Click here to download.
