We’re here to help you prepare for a health professional program, wherever you might be in the process. Learn about what it means to be pre-health, and explore health career options. Use resources on this site to take the steps to develop a competitive portfolio of career-enriching experiences, and apply to health professional programs.

Pre-health, like pre-med, is simply the route a student takes in order to enter a health professional field.

So it’s not a major or an academic track. Your route will involve exploring, preparing, and applying. 

UAF also has a memorandum of understanding with Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine which guarantees an admission interview for qualified applicants. More information can be found here.
