Note: Students interested in Hunter’s Nursing, Public Health, Nutrition, or Medical Laboratory Science programs can find the information they need online at the School of Health Professions website and the Hunter Bellevue School of Nursing website. We do not advise these students in the Pre-Health Advising Office.



The Pre-Health Office at Hunter College provides a wealth of information, opportunities and support for students planning to enter the health professions as physicians, dentists, podiatrists, optometrists and veterinarians. Although not a separate major, the Pre-Health Program is highly structured, with clearly specified requirements for establishing a Pre-Health file and guidelines for a path toward professional school admission based on a proven formula for success. Pre-Health Advising is enhanced by a regular series of workshops and panel discussions designed to optimize students’ awareness of opportunities available to them while also building their portfolios as potentially successful applicants. The Pre-Health Office provides valuable guidance to students at all stages of their academic careers and offers individualized feedback to students as they prepare their professional school applications and personal statements.

Although Hunter College supports a very large population of Pre-Health students with a small staff, these students enjoy remarkably high acceptance rates in comparison to national averages and also in comparison to many other pre-medical programs. Acceptance rates for Hunter College students whose applications have been supported by the Pre-Health Advising office have increased dramatically from 46% for the 2011-2012 application cycle, to 84% for 2016-2017. Post-Baccalaureates in Hunter's Certificate Program in Health Careers Preparation achieved an 88% acceptance rate for the 2016-2017 application cycle. Several of our Post-Baccalaureates enter medical school each year through one of our growing number of linkage programs.
