    Pre-Med and Other Professional Programs

    Pre-professional is a category for students who intend to enter a professional school after graduating with their bachelor’s degrees. "Pre-professional" is not a major in itself, rather it is a specialized concentration with tailored advising to help you meet your post-graduation goals. 

    Program Highlights:

    • Specialized advising for students looking to enter medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary, chiropractic, and other graduate programs 
    • A medical-school-of-choice acceptance rate of more than 95 percent.
    • Small classes and a 20:1 student-to-teacher ratio, with opportunities to find mentors and develop strong working relationships with classmates.
    • Highly qualified faculty members eager to share their experience and research in biology and chemistry.
    • Accelerated “3+4” programs that enable students in strong academic standing to advance to graduate school after three years at Saint Francis.
    • Practical experience in such settings as emergency rooms and family practitioners’ offices.
    • Undergraduate research projects that enable you to work closely with professors in your field of study.
