Planning to seek admission into a health professional school after graduation? Choose one of Post University’s pre-health tracks (such as pre-med or pre-vet) to fulfill your prerequisite courses, in addition to the required courses for your degree program. Regardless of your major at Post University, you can declare a pre-health track and prepare for your next step into medical, veterinary, dentistry, pharmacy, optometry, podiatry, physician assistant, physical therapy, and other related health professional schools.
Our pre-health tracks are neither degree programs nor concentrations. They are recommended courses that may or may not already be required by your degree program. Nearly all health professional and pre-med schools require the following 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 course plan that meets your needs. They will also discuss internships and other experiences across Connecticut that can help you succeed in your chosen profession. 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.
