Pre-Medical Program

As a pre-med student at USciences, you’ll have the support of a team of faculty and pre-health profession advisors dedicated to helping you achieve your goal of becoming a doctor, dentist, veterinarian or optometrist. We know the kind of candidate sought by medical and other health professions schools—students with a strong foundation in the sciences and humanities—who demonstrate these core competencies. Through personalized course selection, hands-on research, healthcare experiences and application assistance you will be more than prepared to take the next step.

What Sets Us Apart?
