“Pre-Health Professional” refers to most medically related fields, including medical, dental, veterinary, physician assistant, optometry, podiatry, and physical therapy, but does not apply to nursing or other paths that lie outside of the natural sciences and health professions.
We have support for the following pre-health careers:
- Pre-Anesthesiology Assistant
- Pre-Athletic Training
- Pre-Naturopathic Medicine
- Pre-Occupational Therapy
- Pre-Physical Therapy
- Pre-Physician Assistant
- Pre-Speech Language Pathology
- Pre-Veterinary Medicine
In this program, students will participate in specific activities that encourage ongoing exploration of the health care field and prepare them for success in this highly competitive arena. Activities include workshops, classes, one-on-one advising, and professional observation and volunteer experiences. Students completing the program are well prepared to submit a holistically competitive application to outstanding professional programs.
Students should review the program guidelines for comprehensive information on the program requirements, eligibility, and applications.
Although any Florida Southern College student may pursue a pre-health career, only the most competitive students will be accepted into Pre-Health Professional Program. See program details for more information.
