Pre-Health Preparation

While there are prerequisite courses for all health professional programs, preparing for graduate education in the health professions requires more than taking the correct courses. Students must also demonstrate their motivation and commitment to the profession through exposure to the field, direct contact with patients, and evidence of core competencies such as service orientation, professionalism, integrity, and resilience.
