Are you interested in pursuing a career in the health field? W&J’s Pre-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.
We offer students on-campus resources, including the Pre-Health Library stocked with medical reference books, reference books about different health professions, and information about schools.
Support from the College doesn’t stop once you’ve achieved your bachelor’s degree. 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; and the Chatham University Physician Assistant Studies Program.
The Pre-Health Professions program is overseen by the departments of Biology and Chemistry, with assistance from related departments. Additional program information is available in the College Catalog.
