Premedical & Health Professions


This advisory program provides the information, guidance and assistance needed to complete the admissions requirements for graduate programs in the medical and health professions. These programs include doctoral programs in medicine (MD/DO), dentistry (DDS/DSM), pharmacy (PharmD), physical therapy (DPT), optometry (OD), podiatry (DPM), chiropractic (DC), and occupational therapy (OTD), as well as master’s level programs in physician assistant (PA), public health (MPH), and pathologists’ assistant (PA). The program also assists students seeking admission to the new accelerated nursing programs leading to the BSN degree.

The Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program is NOT an academic program—students do not matriculate and earn a degree in this program. Although currently housed in the College of Health Sciences and Technology, this is an advisory program that is available to all RIT students and RIT alumni regardless of their academic studies.

There is no application process to obtain the services of the Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program. All RIT students and alumni receive full benefits by simply enrolling in the program. You can also consult with your program’s academic adviser for more information.

Becoming a medical professional requires certain qualifications, including completing pre-requisite courses, earning good grades, acquiring pertinent experiences in the field, and developing key intrapersonal and interpersonal qualities. Members of the Premedical and Health Professions Advisory Program work with each student to help them earn the privilege of becoming a healthcare provider.
