Medicine has been described as both an art and a science. The Pre-health programs at UW-Parkside reflect this dual perspective. Graduates are very well prepared as demonstrated by the high success rate of UW-Parkside graduates in admission to professional schools. This success is due in part to a well-developed program of advising, which includes course selection, admission test preparation, application assistance, and practice interviews.
Because of the intensely competitive nature of Pre-health fields, students with 30 or more credits must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 to be eligible for special advising. Students with GPA's below 2.5 are counseled to re-evaluate their career plans and are referred to the academic department of their chosen major and/or the Career Center for advice. Students looking for further information on pre-health should contact Lisa Lee at (262) 595-2327 or email@example.com.
