Pre-Health Professions

Students preparing for a career in medicine or other health professions (osteopathy, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physical therapy, physician assistant programs and veterinary medicine) may major or minor in any area (Biology, English, Urban Affairs, etc). Pre-Health is not a program and there is no special application for undergraduate students at Hunter College who are interested in following a pre-medical curriculum. Students can register with the Pre-Health Advising Office at Hunter College by going to It is important that students maintain a close relationship with the premedical advising office from the time they become interested in such a career. Admission to professional schools is highly competitive so exceptional academic preparation is key, as is strong experience in leadership, research and community service. There are several premedical clubs on campus and students are encouraged to join one as soon as they enter Hunter. In addition to our undergraduate program, the college offers a Health Careers Preparation  certificate for students who already have a bachelor’s degree (in any field) and wish to prepare for admission to a health professions school on a full-time or part-time basis. Post-Baccalaureate students who have little or no science background are welcome as well as those who need to enhance their credentials.

The Pre-Health Professions Advising offices are located on the 12th floor of the East building. All Students are encouraged to review the invaluable information on the pre-health website at and to join the pre-health listserv. Students can make an appointment with an adviser on the pre-health website For questions you can e-mail
