Pre-Health Areas

Professions in health care provide exciting, socially important, and personally rewarding careers, and Doane University can provide the supportive, interdisciplinary environment needed to pursue these careers. 

Critical science courses required for entrance to professional school have small class sizes allowing personalized attention.  Shadowing and internship experiences are available and provide important knowledge about the profession.  Doane offers many research opportunities to make you stand out from the crowd.  The Health and Medical Occupations Club offers educational and social activities that will make preparing for medical school fun. A special interdisciplinary advisory group called the Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC) will provide guidance and feedback throughout your time at Doane.
