UMHB offers special advising programs for students who want to pursue a career in a medically oriented field. Medical schools and other institutions that offer graduate-level training in the health professions look for applicants who have a strong foundation in the natural sciences, a background in the social sciences and humanities, communication and leadership skills, and a commitment to ethics and service.
Students wishing to apply to graduate programs in the health professions may major in any field of study, as long as they also complete the foundational courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics that the professional schools require. The pre-professional advising programs at UMHB are designed to keep students on track for meeting both the requirements of their chosen major and the requirements for admission to a professional school after graduation from UMHB.
