Preparation for Medical School and Other Professional Study

“Pre-medicine” is not a major at John Brown University. At most institutions of higher learning, a curriculum termed “pre-medicine” means simply that a student is meeting requirements for admission to medical school. Therefore, in addition to working toward a baccalaureate degree in some discipline, the student is satisfying medical school requirements.

JBU has a Pre-Health Professions Program (PHPP) for students preparing for training as a physician, dentist, optometrist, veterinarian, pharmacist, or a career in one of the allied health professions, such as a physician assistant, physical therapist, occupational therapist, and public health administrator, among others.

While students in any major may participate in the PHPP, majors in Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry provide particularly good preparation for careers in the health professions. All students in the PHPP must fulfill certain course and internship requirements largely determined by the professional schools of interest to the student. The PHPP is supervised by the Health Professions Advisory Committee.
