How does pre-health work at Knox?

While many of our pre-med and pre-health students choose to major in the sciences, it also is common to see a double major or minor in the arts, humanities, or social sciences. Students interested in the social and psychological aspects of individual and community health may choose to  minor in Health Studies. Learn more about the requirements of majors you might be interested in or start taking courses required for professional programs while exploring your interests en route to finding a major.  To see one possible path a student may travel on their way to becoming a physician, check out the Example Pre-Medical Timeline.

Academic Planning

You won't be flying solo when it comes to selecting the right courses or preparing for the MCAT. Our pre-health program advisor is here to help you with:

  • Course selection
  • Planning study-abroad experiences.
  • Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) review
