Pre-Health Science Program

About the Program

Are you interested in a career in medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine or physical therapy? The Pre-Health Science program has the tools and advice you need to get to professional school after graduation.

The School of Natural & Social Sciences offers pre-health science tracks for students interested in professional school after they graduate from Texas Wesleyan. Each track advises you to take the basic requirements to apply for several professional schools in the state of Texas.

At the same time, we also recommend that you join the Pre-Professional Program (3PR) to make sure you're doing everything you can to get to medical school, dentistry school or any other graduate professional school.

What requirements do I have to meet?

Professional schools have basic requirements you have to meet. Your pre-health science advisor will work with you to plan your schedule to meet those requirements. Take a look at your graduate school options and the requirements you'll need to meet.
