About the Program

Prepare for medical school or career in the allied health fields in a comprehensive, supportive environment.

This “umbrella” major provides a broad range of science courses while offering unique electives such as histology and pathology – getting you ahead for whatever comes next.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Strong scientific foundation
  • Experiential learning
  • Clinical experience
  • Preceptorships
  • Personal career guidance

A case-history and problem-based learning approach prepare you to interpret complex data, while clinical experiences and preceptorships support the development of analytical and empathic communication skills; which are critical for success in medical school and the health professions.

You will also have individual attention in small classes, allowing you to have personal faculty guidance, who help plan possible career paths and assist with medical school applications – not to mention we have MCAT test prep on-campus. 

PhilaU Pre-Medical graduates go to programs at Temple University School of Medicine, Thomas Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School, among other institutions.
