Pre-Health Professions Office
The primary mission of the Schmidt College of Science's Pre-Health Professions Office is to be a source of support and guidance for ALL FAU students: including all undergraduate majors, post-baccalaureate students, and alumni interested in pursuing careers in the health professions. Learn more about the pre-health pathways.
Our pre-health advisors are committed to providing advising tailored to meet the needs of each individual, creating meaningful relationships with our students. We work to create an environment full of academic excellence, strong relationships with students, faculty and staff; and learning opportunities through clinical experiences, community service, scientific inquiry and research as well as campus involvement.
A “traditional” pre-health pathway is offered for freshmen and transfer students wanting to earn a Bachelor’s degree and apply to professional school. Students may select any major at FAU, however, due to restrictions in credit hours and the design of the new MCAT exam we recommend that students consider one of these degree programs: Neuroscience, Biology, Medical Biology, and Chemistry (Biochemistry). A post-baccalaureate medical pathway program is also offered for students who have already earned a Bachelor’s degree.
All academic advising (for students that maintain over a 3.0 GPA) will take place with the Pre-Health Professions Offices on three FAU campuses: on the Boca Campus in room SE 308, on the Davie Campus in room ES 290, and on the Jupiter Campus in SR-MC03 room 130.
