 What is "Pre-Health"?

At OSU, the term "Pre-Health," "Pre-Med" or "Pre-Vet," regardless of major, refers to a student's intent to explore, validate and take action to grow holistically into a viable professional healthcare candidate.  There is not one right or “more impressive” major for students interested in pursuing a professional education in the healthcare field.

Most health related professional programs require specific coursework to be completed at the undergraduate level to set the foundation for more advanced coursework during professional school. Depending on what type(s) of health programs a student is interested in and where they are interested in attending school will impact what types of prerequisite coursework will be required before admission to professional school.
