Pre-medical/Pre-Health Professional Programs at MSU


The premedical option is part of a broader pre-health professions program at Montana State University administered through the Health Professions Advising Office (http://www.montana.edu/dhs/hpa/). Students interested in attending medical, dental, pharmacy, physician assistant, optometry, or chiropractic school are encouraged to participate in this program.   Students considering a health professional career can major in any curriculum within the institution.  To facilitate this academic decision-making process, the Health Professions Advising office, in conjunction with University Studies, is offering an optional ‘Pre-Med’ entry major.  As part of the entry major, student academic and health care exploration will be supported.  Students will be poised to choose a major going into the sophomore year.  The office will continue to  provide information, advising, counseling and application support to all students interested in becoming health care professionals.  An overview of services available through the Health Professions Advising Office is provided during orientation week at the start of the academic year.  At this orientation session, students are given information about the courses required for making application to health professional school and encouraged to keep in contact with the Health Professions Advising Office.   The Director of the Health Professions Advising Office is available to meet with students enrolled at Montana State University and high school students considering attending MSU . The office provides guidance throughout the process of making application to health professional schools.  Students are invited to attend meetings of the pre- health professions club, the pre-dental club, the American Medical Student Association, and/or the pre-health professional honor society (Alpha Epsilon Delta) and become eligible for membership in the society during the sophomore year.
