The Pre-Professional Pathways at Boise State University are designed for students who intend to apply to a professional school after graduating. Pre-Professional Pathways are not degree programs. While students still need to declare a major, a pathway helps students identify opportunities and coursework to make them more competitive for professional school after graduating. This option serves students who have identified with career paths in pre-chiropractic, pre-dental, pre-dental hygiene, pre-dietetics, pre-medical laboratory science, pre-medicine, pre-occupational therapy, pre-optometry, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-physician assistant, pre-speech language pathology, or pre-veterinary medicine.
The information on this website is not meant to take the place of meeting with a health professions advisor. Every student should work with an advisor to develop and then review an individuals personal, academic, and career goals. For information about academic preparation for any of the healthcare professions listed above consult with the advisors in the College of Health Sciences Academic Advising Office.
