The Pre-Health Professions Program seeks to provide John Carroll students with as many opportunities as possible to fulfill their goal of becoming a healthcare professional. We advise students on issues such course selection, career paths in healthcare, and preparing and applying for medical or professional school.

  • Our office includes a full-time director, Kathy Lee, Ph.D., and a physician-in-residence, George Lewandowski ’78, M.D., who are available to mentor and assist students.
  • We also offer a course, Survey of the Health Professions, designed to familiarize students with the wide array of professions within healthcare, the educational requirements for entering these professions, and the ability to meet admissions officers from the professional schools along with those who are students or professional practitioners in the various fields.

Beyond JCU

We also have developed partnerships with several institutions to benefit our students as they pursue their career goals. Some programs that are currently in place include:

Professional Healthcare Preparation Minor and Certificate

Pre-Medical Post Baccalaureate Program

  • Our Pre-Medical Post Baccalaureate Program is aimed at those students who have obtained a bachelor’s degree but are seeking to fulfill the math and science requirements for medical school admission.
