Pre-Medical/Pre-Dental Studies Program (for students interested in medical, dental, or veterinary school)
Health Sciences Program (for students interested in other health-related programs)
Note: These programs are available as minors for students who are not majoring in Biology, Chemistry, or Biochemistry.
The courses listed above provide a minimal program of preparation for the entrance exams and for admission to the graduate programs. Additional courses directly related to the chosen profession may also be needed for admission. It is highly recommended that two or more of the courses listed above be taken in the first semester at Manhattanville. The sequence in which these courses are taken should be discussed with a member of the PHPAC as early as possible in the academic career to ensure the best possible advice.
Admission to graduate programs in the health professions is highly selective. To compete successfully for admission, students must maintain a minimum 3.25 cumulative G.P.A. and a 3.0 G.P.A. in the courses listed above while at Manhattanville. Students should be aware that some professional schools require a G.P.A. higher than 3.0. Students should also be aware that some professional schools require a very strong performance on a standardized entrance exam (MCAT or DAT, for example).
