Pre-Health Professions Advising
Some disciplines in the pre-health professions program require students to complete a bachelor's degree before applying to professional school. The bachelor's degree should be in a discipline that interests the student. No specific major is preferred by professional schools over another, and students may choose the major from any undergraduate college at Kansas State University.
Pre-health professions is not a major (students cannot earn a degree in pre-health professions). Students are encouraged to declare interest in their major as well as the pre-health program when they apply for admission.
The College of Arts and Sciences provides advising assistance for all students interested in any pre-health profession. At K-State, the pre-health areas of study currently include clinical laboratory science (medical technology), pre-dentistry, pre-health information management, pre-medicine, pre-nursing, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-respiratory care. Pre-veterinary medicine advising is available through the College of Agriculture and the College of Arts and Sciences.
