This program prepares students for entering professional schools of medicine (MD or DO). In addition to the required science courses, a broad humanities and liberal arts background is encouraged. Although pre-medical students usually major in the sciences (85 percent), any arts or science major is acceptable. Regardless of their academic major, pre-medicine students must work closely with the pre-medicine advisor in order to insure their proper preparation for medical school. The university’s pre-medicine program is supported by approximately 10 full tuition and books scholarships, which are based on academic excellence, not need. See also the CWU Health Career Resources website at www.cwu.edu/health-career/pre-medicine-home.

Pre-Professional Programs Information


These programs are planned for two groups of students-those who want one or two years of college work prior to entering an occupation, and those who want to do pre-professional work for one, two, three, or four years before entering a professional school, university, or college.

The programs described are not to be considered unalterable. They represent patterns that generally agree with the requirements of many professional schools. Since there are many variations in the requirements of the professional schools, students should, after consulting the CWU catalog, select courses required by the institution from which they expect to earn a degree.

The following pre-professional programs are offered: pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-dietetics, pre-engineering, pre-law, pre-medical technology, pre-medicine, pre-nursing in public health, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary.
