PRE-HEALTH QUALIFICATION Gannon University offers a preparatory program for graduates with a B.A or B.S. in which students can return to school to complete the required coursework needed to enter health professional schools (i.e. chiropractic medicine, dental medicine, medicine, optometry, pharmacy, podiatric medicine, and veterinary medicine). GU Entry Requirements • Baccalaureate degree from an accredited university or college • Cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale in undergraduate biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses • Evidence of academic and personal potential and a desire to enter one of the health professions mentioned above This program may be completed with a part-time or full-time status and can be completed in two years. Students may transfer up to 12 credits toward the program but must complete at least 26 credits at Gannon University to complete the program. Science courses must be taken in sequence (see prerequisites for each course). This preparatory program is intended for individuals who lack all or most of the prerequisite coursework needed to apply to professional school. It is not intended for those seeking to improve their scores in undergraduate prerequisite coursework or seeking to take additional upper-level coursework in the sciences. At the time of application to professional school, eligible students who have obtained a GPA of 3.0 or higher in the program coursework will receive a letter of recommendation from the Pre-Health Applicant Review Committee at Gannon University. Further information and career counseling are available from the Director.
