Are you considering becoming a nurse, physician, pharmacist, dentist or medical lab technician? What about an occupational therapist, public health educator or health administrator? Or becoming the person who discovers a new treatment for asthma or heart disease or discovers what makes a normal cell become a cancer cell?
The innovative and modern curriculum at UC Merced will provide excellent academic preparation for health professional schools. Research experiences and opportunities for leadership in the first research university of the 21st century will provide competitive advantages for all students interested in applying for health professional careers.
There is rarely if ever a "pre-med", "pre-dental" or "pre-pharmacy" major at any college. When a student is "pre-med", he or she is not only taking the classes required for admission to medical school, but also has a major in a specific subject matter area.
The pre-health advisor is committed to being a partner in your preparation for a health science program. You will be assisted along the way—pointing you in the right direction, helping you with time lines, giving you insights into the application process—and the pre-health advisor will be a resource for you as you make your choices.
