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. The first thing you need to know is that you can major in just about any discipline and matriculate to a health professions school. Pick a major that you like and will like spending many hours studying. 

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 journey so that he/she can help you evaluate your progress.

We currently have students at UAB School of Medicine, University of South Alabama College of Medicine, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Georgia, Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Spartanburg, SC, Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine-Auburn Campus, UAB School of Dentistry, University of Louisville School of Dentistry, and a large number of students in pharmacy school at McWhorter School of Pharmacy, Harrison School of Pharmacy, Belmont University, and Union University. In addition, we have students in Auburn's School of Veterinary Medicine program and at Mississippi College in the PA program.

If you decide to come to UNA, you will be prepared for the academic rigors of a health professions school.  The science courses you will take will be hard and challenging, but that is to be expected! This journey you are embarking on is a difficult one, but many students have traveled this road before you. Many will follow you!
