Learn More About the Program
Graduate and medical school requirements vary depending on the discipline you want to pursue. Our Health Professions Committee will help you tailor a course of study specific to your academic and career goals. Many pre-health professions students choose to major in biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or neuroscience, but you can customize your program to match your interests.
Healthcare, With Care
The Health Professions Committee will monitor your academic progress, provide information on standardized exams and graduate programs, evaluate application materials, and conduct mock interviews. We’re here to help you do your best work, giving you the encouragement and advice you need to thrive.
Our Neidig-Garber Science Center provides opportunities to do real research. You’ll go beyond textbook experiments, while working with instruments and techniques often available only at larger institutions. Many faculty turn to undergraduates for help conducting their own research.
LVC students complete their medical and health degrees at institutions such as the Drexel University College of Medicine, Temple University School of Pharmacy, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and more. The faculty-led Health Professions Committee advises students as they pursue careers in these fields.
