There is perhaps no greater calling than that of nurturing human life, and Huntington University’s pre-med graduates have been answering that call for over a century. Many have taken the quality education they’ve received at Huntington and gone on to become physicians, dentists, nurses, medical assistants, medical research scientists, pharmacists, pharmacologists, and the list goes on.
As a pre-med student at Huntington University, you’ll explore the building blocks of life itself. You’ll receive rigorous training in biology and chemistry with particular emphasis on molecular biology and biochemistry.
In our pre-med program, you will choose to concentrate your studies in either biology, chemistry, or the biochemistry track within the chemistry major.
Huntington also offers degrees leading to a career in nursing.
If you are interested in a career in physical therapy or occupational therapy, take a look at our kinesiology degree in exercise and movement science.
At Huntington University, you’ll have opportunities which are not available at larger universities. Importantly, your classes here will not be taught by “graduate assistants,” but rather by exceptionally credentialed full-time professors.
You will have ready access to high-tech equipment and well-stocked labs.
During the summer, you might partner with your professors on important research projects, land an internship at one of the Midwest’s leading chemical or pharmaceutical research labs, or study with other pre-medical students at the AuSable Institute of Environmental Studies in Michigan obtain certification as an Emergency Medical Technician. You might also participate in a short-term medical mission trip, gaining invaluable experience working alongside U.S. doctors and nurses as they serve the poor in developing countries around the world. Closer to home, you and other pre-medical students may job-shadow physicians, therapists, and nurses, gaining experience in various hospital departments (ER, radiology, surgery, etc.). You’ll be well-prepared for medical school.
