7/18/2013 Pre-Health Professions Minor Approved Fall 2013
A new minor in pre-health professions has been approved to be offered beginning Fall 2013. This minor has been created to prepare Cal State Fullerton students, from any major, who want to pursue advanced study in a health professional program. Beginning this fall, students can declare the minor, which will give them a structured pathway to meet health professions pre-requisites and recognizes this secondary field of study and specialization. Over one-quarter of CSUF students admitted each year to professional schools, such as medical, dental, pharmacy, and veterinarian schools, are not traditional science majors. Coupled with intrusive advising and additional resources, this program will enhance the competitiveness of all of our students for professional school, regardless of their major. Students who would like to stay up to date should add themselves to the ListServ at http://www.fullerton.edu/health_professions/listserve.asp.
