Pre-Medicine & Pre-Health Professions Program
With the increasing demand for health-related services, there has never been a better time to consider a career as a health professional. As our health care system increases in complexity, there is a need for caring, competent individuals in many areas of expertise. There is a common misconception that this program is a pre-med major, a pre-vet major, a pre-optometry major, or another medical major. As a student in the pre-medicine and pre-health professions program, you can benefit from a unique and tailored plan that fits your background and future aspirations.
Mount Union graduates have found success working in the healthcare field in private practice, pharmacies, clinics and hospitals across the country, including the prestigious Cleveland Clinic.
Graduates of Mount Union’s pre-medical and pre-health program have a high rate of acceptance to professional schools in all health fields. Students go on to study health sciences in places such as The Ohio State University, University of Toledo, Ohio University, Lake Erie College of Medicine and Wright State University.
"Mount Union's Pre-Health Program offers a strong science foundation, personalized guidance, and an organized schedule that kept me on track throughout undergrad. I am grateful for the knowledge I gained while at Mount Union because it prepared me for the rigorous coursework I have encountered while at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. As a Mount Union Pre-Health graduate, I was more prepared than many of my peers and am successfully moving towards my goal of becoming a Podiatric Physician."
