SFA’s Pre-Health Professions Program is a non-academic program that provides guidance and resources for students who plan to apply to professional health programs after graduating from SFA.

Pre-health is not a major at SFA, it is an attribute. You can major in any of the 120 areas of study offered at SFA, excluding nursing, and still be working toward a pre-health offering.

Both science and nonscience-based majors can apply to any professional school. Completion of professional school prerequisites can be accomplished no matter what major you choose.

A Message from Pre-Health Professions Program Director, Dr. Erin Childress

Welcome to SFA’s Pre-Health Professions Program! Thank you for showing interest in our one-of-a-kind program, where you can grow your passion for the professional health care field and become a diverse applicant.

Cultivating well-rounded pre-health students is our goal. Professional schools want to see a balance of arts and sciences, so no one major is endorsed. Our Pre-Health Professions Program provides specialized advising, shadowing and volunteer opportunities, as well as academic resources to all majors who are interested in applying to professional school after graduating from SFA.

Explore our website and learn about how we can assist you in your pre-health journey; we would love to be a part of it!
