Coordinated jointly by the Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development and the Committee for the Health Professions, the pre-health program supports students and alumni exploring and preparing for careers in the health professions with course advising, career or program information and application assistance. Students that participate actively in the program become the well-rounded and prepared candidates desired by professional schools after completing their coursework along with participation in relevant exploratory activities and mentoring.

Dickinson’s pre-health program provides support and advice for students exploring and planning to pursue careers within a variety of the health professions including medicine, osteopathic medicine, dental medicine, veterinary medicine and other health professions, including nursing, physician assistant, physical therapy and pharmacy. To reach these goals, our students transition through the program and into professional school based on individual timing preferences through discussions with pre-health faculty advisors. Whenever they feel prepared, our candidates enter the professional school application process.

Please view the institutions where our alumni have successfully matriculated to attend professional schools after Dickinson. For more information, please contact Debi Swarner, pre-health professions advisor.
