Pre-Health at Viterbo University

Viterbo's pre-health program prepares students for careers in a variety of health-related fields. Students get hands-on experience with modern equipment and techniques, and benefit from research and internship opportunities. Viterbo has collaborated with several professional and graduate schools, allowing students to gain acceptance to these select programs while completing their undergraduate degree. Our current Early Acceptance Programs (EAPs), detailed on the Pre-Health Articulation Agreements page, include pathways to pharmacy, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, and chiropractic programs. Professional program entrance support is provided by the faculty-led pre-health committee, which works closely with individual students to assist them in reaching their goals. Our graduates have a 95%+ acceptance rate into health-related professional schools and graduate programs (compared to a national student acceptance rate of 40–60%). For more information, please visit the Pre-Health Programs page.
