Prepare to Pursue Health Professional School Admission with Pre-Health Courses
Planning to seek admission into a health professional school after graduation? Add a pre-health track (such as pre-med or pre-vet) to your Post University bachelor’s degree program to help fulfill prerequisite coursework for post-graduate studies. Regardless of your major at Post, you can declare a pre-health track to start preparing for the next step in pursuit of admittance to medical, veterinary medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, optometry, podiatry, physician assistant, physical therapy, or other related health professional schools.
Pre-Health Track Highlights
Our pre-health tracks are neither degree programs nor concentrations. They are a set of recommended courses that may or may not already be required by your current degree program major. Many health professional and pre-med schools require pre-health students pursue these prerequisite courses:
- Two semesters of biology with laboratory
- Two semesters of general chemistry with laboratory
- Two semesters of organic chemistry with laboratory
- Two semesters of physics with laboratory
- Two semesters of English
- One or two semesters of college mathematics
Some health professional and pre-med programs also recommend or require courses in biochemistry, psychology, sociology, microbiology with laboratory, anatomy, and physiology with laboratory, genetics, and cell biology with laboratory.
A pre-health advisor will help you research the requirements for your particular school(s) of interest and design a pre-health course plan that meets your needs. They will also discuss internships and other experiences across Connecticut that can help you succeed in your chosen health career field. At Post University, we take a personal interest in your goals and will be there to support you throughout your educational journey — from enrollment through graduation.

Note: While the Pre-Health Track at Post University is designed to offer the undergraduate coursework many graduate schools traditionally require for admission to a relevant healthcare-related program—including medical, veterinary, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, etc.—each institution’s program is unique and could have additional requirements for admission. Other factors can and often do come into play. It is ultimately the responsibility of each student to understand and fulfill the admission requirements for their desired program. Post University does not guarantee admittance for graduate programs of any kind with any other school, university, or educational organization.
