About the Program

The Health Science Pre-Professional (HSPP) programs are designed to prepare students for entry into professional schools in a wide arena of health-related professions. Building a solid foundation in the Sciences and Humanities prepares our undergraduates for the challenges of pursuing a career in the diverse and ever-changing healthcare industry. Due to the thoughtful design of our curriculum, students take similar coursework the first two years of enrollment, allowing the flexibility of switching from one HSPP program to another. The most outstanding feature of HSPP is that the course requirements for entry into professional school are incorporated into the plans of study, resulting in no extra coursework for our undergraduates.
