“Pre-Health” means that a student would like to attend a healthcare-related professional school after leaving UNC Charlotte. In order to reach this goal, students must complete certain academic and extracurricular requirements to prepare for an application to the professional school. We refer to this is following a “pre-health track”. For example, a student who wants to become a dentist would follow a pre-dental track and would be referred to as a pre-dental student. Students, however, cannot graduate with a degree in Pre-Health, Pre-Dental, etc.
Pre-Health students can choose from a number of different degrees that require the necessary coursework to be admitted to a professional school.
Pre-Health advising is housed in the Honors College and is a great resource for students interested in healthcare-related fields
