Welcome to Medical & Allied Health Programs at Sam Houston State University. Our mission is to mentor, prepare, and guide highly motivated students in the successful fulfillment of the demanding and dynamic prerequisites for the medical professional program of their choosing. We believe the guidance and academic foundation you receive at Sam Houston State University to be among the strongest upon which to build your professional medical career.
Preparation for your medical career commences in the Fall Semester of your Freshman year or with your first college coursework.; It is extremely important you begin by receiving advisement for the courses and course sequences appropriate to your medical career interests and goals. Typically, a pre-medical/dental–allied health student works toward a Bachelor or Science (or possibly Bachelor of Arts) degree. None of the Texas professional schools specifies a particular academic major or minor. However, since most of your prerequisite courses are in the sciences, a science major and minor (i.e., Biology, Chemistry, and/or Physics) provides for an efficient completion of requisite coursework leading to your Baccalaureate degree as well as preparation for professional school admission exams.
If you are a motivated student with career interests and goals residing with Medical and Allied Health Programs, please schedule an appointment to discuss your options and academic training here at Sam Houston State University.
Please contact us for additional information regarding resources and services of our program.
