Do you dream about pursuing an advanced degree in medicine or a health profession such as chiropractic, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, podiatry, or veterinary science? 
UMass Dartmouth's Pre-Med/Pre-Health Program helps you develop the knowledge and skills necessary for future success in medical and health-related careers.

There is no specific pre-med/pre-health major at UMass Dartmouth—instead, we recommend that you choose a major that you will enjoy. Our program's advisors will assist you in choosing the science and mathcourses that will prepare you for admission to medical school and health-related professional programs.

When you apply to UMass Dartmouth, be sure to indicate your interest in pre-med/pre-health on your application.
