Pre-professional Health Sciences
Watch professors talk about how EMU prepares students for graduate and professional health schools.
Pre-professional Health Sciences at EMU is designed for students who wish enter careers in health science such as medicine, physical therapy, or other similarly health related careers.
Students who are service-oriented, compassionate, interested in health and human body issues, and academically competent can develop into skilled health care professionals.
Our undergraduate program emphasizes quality academics and Christian caring empathy and prepares students for entrance into graduate level health professional programs.
Currently, there is a shortage of health care professionals in most areas and during the next decade the U.S. Department of Labor projects a growth of more than 25% in the health care industry, meaning more new jobs than any other industry.
While most PPHS students are biology majors, it is possible to major in chemistry , mathematics or an area in the liberal arts and still succeed in the program at EMU, a small Christian liberal arts college dedicated to Anabaptist and Mennonite values of peacebuilding and service.
PPHS students go on graduate level professional health science studies in:
- veterinary medicine
- physical therapy
- physician assistant
- surgical assistant
- occupational therapy
- public health
- or graduate education and research in any area of biomedicine.
