Pre-Health Professions

Students preparing for a career in allopathic  medicine or other health professions (osteopathy, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physical therapy, physician assistant programs, veterinary medicine, pharmacology)  may major or minor in any area (Biology, English, Urban Affairs, etc). Pre-Health is not a degree 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 the pre-health website. 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.

The Pre-Health Professions Advising offices are located on the 7th floor of the Cooperman Library. All Students are encouraged to review the invaluable information on the pre-health website and to join the pre-health listserv. Students can make an appointment with an adviser on the pre-health website.
