If you're interested in being a doctor or another health-related
career, we have good news. The health-care industry is America's
largest source of jobs — and opportunities continue to grow. In
fact, health-related fields are expected to generate 3 million new
jobs over the next six years.
To prepare for these opportunities, discover the advantages of
the Pre-Health Advisory Programs at St. John’s University. Whether
you want to be a doctor, nurse or other health-care professional,
you’ll need to attend a respected graduate school. Medical and
other professional schools search your college records to see if
you’ve taken the courses, had the experiences and shown the
commitment for advanced study in a health-related field.
Students in the Pre-Health Advisory Programs at St. John's gain the
knowledge, skills and confidence needed for success. One reason is
the high quality of a St. John's education — more than 100 undergraduate programs in the
arts, sciences, business, education, pharmacy and allied health.
These programs — especially in biology and chemistry — offer the
intellectual foundation for advanced study in health-related
fields. Another reason is the high quality of our pre-health
advisors, who know the courses, experiences and activities you need
for admission to medical and other health-related graduate
All students in our Pre-Health Advisory Programs enjoy support
from a personal advisor who reviews each student's program of
study, academic progress and activities each semester. Advisors
also help students choose internships and volunteer experiences
along with preparing for the Medical College Admission Test.
In addition, St. John's offers special, dual degree programs
combining an undergraduate degree at the University with a medical
degree in a specialized area of study.
