Preparing for Medical, Dental, Veterinary, Pharmacy, or Physician's Assistant School

If you plan to attend a professional school once you complete your undergraduate work, but are concerned about gaining admission because you have heard how tough it is to be accepted, this website offers some information that will prove to be helpful in easing those concerns.

Alverno's Pre-Health Professional Studies program is a combination of select courses, pre-health professional advising, relevant opportunities off campus, and peer support programs. Your advisor will guide you in selecting the courses most useful to your professional plans. She will help you navigate the admission test procedures and the application process. With her help, you will connect with Alverno alumnae working in your professional area.

You will also participate in Alverno's internship program, which puts you in contact with faculty and students at area professional schools. Through your internship, you may work in medically oriented laboratories and clinics in the area, which will give you the practical and applied preparation that many undergraduates lack when entering professional schools.

Also, an Alverno organization for pre-health professional students provides you with peer support through the complete preparation and application process.

The courses you take in the Pre-Health Professional Program combine the liberal arts and sciences to provide you with the knowledge base and abilities valued by professional schools. These courses include the ability to analyze keenly, think critically to solve problems both independently and as part of a team, and communicate clearly and convincingly. Small classes, close contact with instructors, and opportunities to do research projects give you an advantage in developing these abilities.

To find out more about Alverno's Pre-Health Professional Studies, contact the Alverno Admission's Office.

An Admission's Counselor will be able to answer your questions about the program, admission procedures, credit transfer, and financial aid.
