Pre-Health Professions Advising

Pre-Health Professions Advising

Welcome from your Pre-Health Advisors

Because students should consider both their curricular and extracurricular choices as important to their preparation for their future career and personal goals, we provide information on course requirements as well as on issues such as gaining practical experience and taking advantage of special undergraduate study programs.

  • "Pre-Health" is not a specific major or academic track. It is a personal and professional development path that students pursue alongside completion of their degree requirements. In consultation with your advisor, it is vital to research all programs of interest to ensure all prerequisite courses and
    experience requirements are met before matriculation. 
  • Every student should work with an advisor to develop and then continuously evaluate an individual academic program that will meet personal goals.  You can view your assigned advisor(s) on TopNet.  For more information on advising, please see our Frequently Asked Questions page.
  • The pre-health links at the top will take you to more detailed information on the pre-professional programs at WKU, including:  information on health professions schools, pre-professional course requirements, advising, advisors, the application process, admissions process, entrance exams, and links to the web pages of professional schools in the region and their professional school associations.
  • The information in this website is not meant to take the place of meeting with your academic advisor each semester and periodically with a health professions advisor.






  • The Dr. Joseph Zaydon Scholarship application is due April 15, 2023.  More information can be found here.

Some of the links on this page may require additional software to view.
