4 The Pre-Professional Health Studies Office Program Description The primary role of the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies is to serve students who are interested in applying to post-graduate professional health studies programs including medical, osteopathic, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, podiatry, or optometry school upon. We serve the following students in the following advising capacities: We serve as primary advisor to Medical Scholars through their freshman year. Scholars are assigned to a primary advisor in their college at the end of freshman year. We remain a secondary advisor to assist in preparation of and application to medical school. We serve as secondary advisor to all SLU students interested in pre-professional health studies. We work with these students to help them incorporate the preprofessional curriculum into their major studies and assist in their preparation for and application to professional school. In addition to advising, we are involved in the following activities: Offering professional and research courses for pre-health students. Offering internship and shadowing programs through area hospitals and organizations. Offering workshops on various aspects of medical school admissions. Sponsoring the Pre-Health Committee on Evaluations (provides recommendations for students). Working with the Pre-Health Clubs to offer social and professional programming to students. We currently have clubs for pre-med, pre-dental, pre-optometry, and other clubs for students interested in health care. Contact Information All students should contact the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies first at or come by the main office to schedule an appointment with one of the advisors. Do not send students directly to specific advisors. Academic advisors may feel free to contact the pre-health advisors directly if they have general or specific student questions. The general address for the office is When you are uncertain about any topics regarding professional schools please do not hesitate to contact a pre-health advisor or refer your student to us. 1

5 Nuts & Bolts Questions & Answers These are the most common questions that we hear and the responses we give. What is the best major for a pre-med/dental/optometry, etc? Professional schools generally do not prefer one major over another. Even so, many prehealth students choose to major in a scientific discipline. Select a major in a subject in which you have an interest and find challenging. You should also choose a major that leads to other careers should you decide not to enter a health professions school or are unable to attend. Your major should be considered as your back up plan. We recommend that you declare your primary major by the end of your freshman year. Selection of a major by the end of your freshman year will provide for better coordination of CORE coursework, the pre-health curriculum, and courses in your declared major(s). It is recommended that, if you select a non-science major, you minor in biology. The advisors in the Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies will serve as secondary advisors for you throughout your years at Saint Louis University. The Office of Pre-Professional Health Studies is always available as a resource center; be sure to visit the Office of Pre- Professional Health Studies to set up a file for the Pre-Health Committee on Evaluations, before the start of the junior year at the very latest. I m not a biology major. Do I have to take an upper-level biology for pre-health? Beyond BIOL 104 & 106 you are technically not required to take any further biology courses. However, health professions schools like to see some upper division Biology courses (300 and 400 level). Molecular Cell Biology I: Cellular Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BIOL 302) is a popular course. What schools are you interested in going to? It would be helpful to investigate their pre-requisite course requirements. I m not doing so well in my science classes. Does this mean I m not going to medical/podiatry/veterinary/ dentistry/ optometry, etc. school? Let s talk about what happened. What are your study habits like? How much time are you devoting to studying your sciences? Are you enjoying your classes for pre-health? These questions will give you some insight into how the student is preparing for classes and will allow the student to verbalize his or her habits and hopefully can realize for him/herself if their goals are appropriate. I decided not to be a doctor anymore Now what? Let s look at your interests. If you are still interested in helping people, a class to assist you in exploring different majors in a helping field would be the Introduction to the Helping Professions course. Additionally, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with a counselor in Career Services. Am I allowed to visit the Pre-Professional Health Office? Yes, it is best to call and make an appointment to meet with someone. The number is You can also stop by the main office in Verhaegen Hall Room 314 to schedule an appointment. 2

6 Frequently Asked Questions from Advisors When should students repeat courses? A student should repeat a course if they received a C- or below in their math and science classes. In addition, it is strongly recommended that any science courses taken at a two-year college be repeated at. All other core or major classes depend upon the colleges requirements. What do I need to tell students in regard to the pre-health committee? The Pre-Health Committee on Evaluations process begins the fall semester before the year the student graduates (i.e. for a four year student it would be the fall semester junior year). Students MUST have a 3.0 math and science (any course that begins with MATH, BIOL, CHEM, and PHYS) GPA and a 3.0 overall GPA to participate in the pre-health committee process. They must have completed 30 hours of credit at SLU and must have completed BIOL 104 & 106, CHEM 163/165 & CHEM In addition, they must have completed either one full year of organic chemistry or one full year of physics. They should inquire at the Pre-Professional Health Studies Office in September. Do students have to take their classes at SLU? Students are encouraged to take their classes at SLU, but if they are unable to, they should at least take their math and science courses at a four-year accredited university. All other classes may be taken at a community college. Students should not be taking science or math classes at another university during the school year while taking classes at SLU. When should students start considering other majors? This will depend on the discretion of the advisor. However, our office recommends after the second semester that the advisor should think about discussing other options. At this point Major Exploration will be a good referral for students. Our office does not provide career counseling for students who do not wish to pursue a professional health program. If students follow the curriculum and get good grades does this mean that they will get into the professional schools of their choice? Completion of the courses does NOT guarantee admission to health professions schools. Professional schools look at GPA, test scores, volunteering, shadowing, interviews, etc. in consideration of all their applicants. Does transfer credit count? Yes, professional schools review all college credit obtained after high school. What about AP credit or dual credit courses? Some medical schools have specific rules and requirements related to the acceptance of AP or dual credit courses for pre-med requirements. It is best to review the website and publications of the medical schools that you plan to apply to regarding their policies. I would like to raise my Math/Science GPA. I have already taken Calculus I. What should I take? Pre-health students wishing to take additional math coursework subsequent to Calculus I are advised only to take math coursework such as Calculus II or higher, with the only exception being Math 130 (Statistics). Pre-med or pre-health students SHOULD NOT ENROLL IN LOWER LEVEL MATH COURSEWORK IN AN ATTEMPT TO RAISE THEIR MATH/SCIENCE OR OVERALL GPAs. Professional health admissions committees do not evaluate student transcripts based solely on GPAs, but rather examine the coursework content for rigor. It is 3

7 very transparent to an admissions committee when a student enrolls in lower-level coursework in an attempt to raise their GPA. I have a student that has a 3.0 overall GPA and 3.0 math and science GPA. When should they start seeing the Pre-professional Health office? Students who have the 3.0 GPAs should see a pre-health advisor by the end of their sophomore year at the latest. Pre-health Curriculum The following classes must be completed prior to application to a health professions school, which includes medical, osteopathic, optometry, dental, and veterinary schools*: BIOL 104 & 106: Principles of Biology I & II CHEM 163/165 & CHEM 164/166 (or CHEM 167/165 & CHEM 168/166): General Chemistry I & II MATH 142: Calculus I CHEM 342/344 & CHEM 343/345: Principles Organic Chemistry I & II PHYS 131/132 & PHYS 133/134 (or PHY161/162 & PHY 163/164): General Physics I & II Other classes that students are encouraged to take, but are typically NOT required are: BIOL 302: Molecular Cell Biology I: Cellular Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (MCB 1) BIOL 304: Molecular Cell Biology II: Cellular Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (MCB 2) BIOL 346: General Physiology BIOL 444: Vertebrate Histology: Structure & Function of Tissues BIOL 342: Comparative Anatomy CHEM 333: Physical Chemistry CHEM 320: Analytical Chemistry MATH 130: Elementary Statistics with Computers PLEASE NOTE RECOMMENDATIONS IN ANTICIPATION OF MCAT 2015! The revised MCAT will have additional content. Students are strongly advised to take an introductory psychology and sociology course, as well as a statistics/research methodology course in preparation (prior to the end of their junior year). Health Professions Schools look at GPAs in two categories: Math/Science (anything that starts with MATH, BIOL, CHEM, PHYS) Overall To be a competitive applicant to a health professions school, students should have at least a 3.0 math/science GPA and 3.0 overall GPA. In 2010, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the average GPAs for matriculants to U.S. allopathic medical schools were: Science GPA: 3.61, Non-Science GPA: 3.74 and Total GPA: Traditional pre-health students are highly encouraged to obtain a biology minor if they do not major in a science field. However, students should research which school they would like to attend to find out specific pre-requisite courses needed before graduation. *Students will need to see a pre-health advisor for other health profession schools. 4

8 Special Considerations for Pre-Health Transfer Students We strongly urge pre-health transfer students to meet individually with an advisor from the Pre-Professional Health Studies Office prior to beginning their first semester at SLU. We will help design an individualized, comprehensive plan of study in preparation for professional school admission. Although GPAs of the credit received from another institution do not transfer to SLU, when students apply to medical or other professional school they will report grades received in all classes from all previous institutions which will be calculated by the schools admission committees. Medical schools are extremely competitive. To be a competitive candidate, students need a high GPA. Medical schools review both math/science GPA and overall cumulative GPA. Students must ensure that all transcripts from previous institutions, as well as AP scores from high school, are sent to the Office of the Registrar, and have been articulated. If students previously took the ACT or SAT, these results should also be forwarded to the University. These scores are often helpful when placing students in the appropriate classes. For assistance in determining how coursework may transfer to SLU, students can refer to the Unofficial Transfer Articulation Listing by College at Medical Schools prefer that students take all of their science courses at an accredited four-year institution. For this reason, we strongly recommend that students re-take science courses completed at the community college level. The Chemistry Department requires students who have previously taken chemistry at another institution to take a chemistry placement test. To be eligible to enroll in Biology 302, students must have taken Biology 104 and 106, as well as Chemistry 163, 164, 165, and 166, or have equivalent course credit. Although students might have completed two years at a community college, due to the necessity of completing science coursework at a four-year institution, it often takes more than two additional years to complete all of the pre-health coursework along with other requirements toward degree completion. Students must have an established GPA at SLU before they can participate in the Pre-Health Committee on Evaluations process. A minimum math/science and cumulative GPA of 3.0 (including all SLU and transfer coursework) is required of students wishing to participate in the Committee on Evaluations process. Students must also have a minimum of 30 hours of SLU course credit in order to participate in the committee process. 5
