Pre-Health Graduate School Preparation Tracks (Non-degree)

Pre-health graduate school preparation tracks are designed for students who are majoring in any discipline in the College of Arts and Sciences to also complete a set of courses needed for admission to many medical, dental, physical therapy, and veterinary schools or for advanced study in other health profession fields. Students can elect to add a track to their disciplinary major. Once enrolled, these students will be advised by their disciplinary major advisor and a pre-health professions advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) Academic Advising Center. This program is distinct from UNE’s Early Assurance Program. Students are not required to enroll in a pre-health graduate school preparation track in order to be eligible to apply for graduate health professions programs.
