About

Thinking of a career in medicine or veterinary science? A liberal arts degree from the LIU Post – with support from the Pre-Medical Sciences Advisement Program – is a great place to start.

Overview

Careers in medicine are exciting and rewarding. Whether your goal is to enroll in medical, osteopathy, dental or veterinary school or to specialize in optometry, chiropractic or podiatric care, your options are limitless, but the key to success begins with your undergraduate degree preparation.

Many students who plan to enter the field of medicine earn their Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in such liberal arts subjects as English, history, political science, math, economics or the laboratory sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, or psychology). These programs equip you with the research, writing and critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in the competitive and demanding world of medicine.

At LIU Post, the Pre-Medical Sciences Advisement Program will provide you with personal guidance as you make important decisions relating to advanced study and achieving professional goals. The Program is open to any student who is interested in a career in the medical field. Our program has successfully helped hundreds of students achieve their goal of becoming physicians, dentists, veterinarians, optometrists, chiropractors and podiatrists.

Programme Structure

  • The Pre- Medical Advisement Committee is designed to assist students in their pursuit of admission to professional schools in medicine. 
  • The program is administered by a committee consisting of faculty members from various academic departments of the University. Students should register with the Pre-Medical Sciences Advisement Committee as early as possible in their academic careers. 
  • The Pre-Medical Sciences Advisement Committee Chair will counsel students as to courses they should take to fulfill the requirements of the professional school they wish to attend. When a student has registered with the Pre-Medical Sciences Advisement Committee Chair, he/she will be assigned to a member of the committee who will serve as the student's sponsor throughout the college years. 
  • The committee chair and the sponsor advise students about such things as their course of study and gaining admission to professional schools.
