Note: Some health professional schools may have additional science and/or math requirements.

Over the years a number of students who have not majored in any of the sciences have established for themselves a career goal in one of the health professions (e.g., medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, etc.). Entrance into a health professional school does not require that students major in a science. The pre-professional health minor is designed for non-science majors who need a minor and/or the courses required to satisfy entrance requirements into health professional schools. It will also provide the minimum preparation needed in order to successfully take standardized entrance exams.

For questions regarding this minor and entrance requirements to health professional schools, contact Dr. Richard Wilkins at 631-244-3491 or visit him in his office in the Kramer Science Center on Dowling’s Rudolph Campus in Oakdale.
