Health Pre-Professional Programs


Academic, curricular, and co-curricular choices are paramount in preparing for your future career goals. Students who wish to pursue a health career in medicine, dentistry, physician assistant, pharmacy, physical therapy, veterinary, etc. are challenged academically and personally, but they are also supported and taught by dynamic professors and advisors.

Tarleton State University’s Pre-Health Program aims to:

  • Prepare you to take admissions exams (MCAT, DAT, GRE, etc.) into health professional programs or graduate school.
  • Make sure you understand the application timeline for their health profession.
  • Guide you in developing co-curricular experiences including serving others, job shadowing, leadership roles, study abroad, and more to “round out” your pre-health experience.

I love science and am pursuing a career in medicine! Job shadowing doctors helps me stay super-focused and keeps me excited about reaching my goals. Seeing someone performing my dream job makes me work harder, so I can become that person!
