Pre-Health Programs

The pre-health program prepares you to pursue a healthcare career with a wholistic perspective.

Program Highlights


Gain experience using state-of-the-art instrumentation in more than 80,000 sq. ft. of cutting-edge science facilities.

What Will I Learn?

Good healthcare requires that healthcare providers be knowledgeable about culture, literature, history, art, and music as well as science.

  • You are strongly encouraged to spend additional time outside the college classroom working in one or more healthcare-related areas of interest.
  • Pre-professional students also have the opportunity to spend time with former graduates of Roberts, in the upstate New York Area, who can model wholistic healthcare from a Christian perspective.
