Health Professions

The Health Professions program, available to students in any major, is designed for students who plan to attend a health professional school following graduation from W&J. W&J graduates have attended schools for allopathic, osteopathic, and veterinary medicine; pharmacy; dentistry; podiatry; optometry; physician assistant; physical therapy and occupational therapy.

On-campus student resources include the Pre-Health Library, located in the Swanson Science Center. The library is open during the day when the building is open, and available materials include, but are not limited to, medical reference books, reference books about different health professions, and information about schools. In addition, the Pre-Health Bulletin Board, also located in Swanson Science Center, contains information about health schools, the MCAT exam, internship opportunities, and more.

W&J has agreements regarding admission of qualified students to the Temple University School of Medicine; the Chatham University School of Physical Therapy; the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University; the Saint Francis University Department of Physician Assistant Sciences; and the Chatham University Program of Master of Physician Assistant Studies.

Additional program information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
