For Students Interested in Healthcare
Pre-Health is a designation that indicates your interest in a health profession. Pre-health is not a major at UNO. It is series of pre-requisite courses that prepare you for a health profession of your choice. While UNO does not award degrees in health professional programs, we can help you to be a successful candidate through guided coursework and one-on-one advising.
In addition to your pre-health designation(s), you are strongly encouraged to choose a major that will help you to obtain your goals. Our pre-professional curriculums allow you to pursue the major of your choice while completing the pre-requisites often at the same time.
Not all health professions programs require bachelor's degrees to apply, while others do require a bachelor's degree before your application will be considered. Below you'll find a list of all of the Pre-Health curricula that we offer, divided by whether you'll need to graduate from UNO first.

We want to help you find your passion in the health professions. Getting involved in health care by joining the UNO Pre-Health Professionals Club, volunteering or shadowing are all great ways to have a better understanding of the various professions. We also encourage you register for BIOL 1060 – Introduction to Medical Careers as a way to be aware of all of your options.
