Emory & Henry has a strong tradition of training healthcare professionals as a part of its mission to serve others. 

The goals of the college’s Pre-Health Program are to educate students about the various healthcare fields and prepare them for entrance into professional training programs beyond their baccalaureate degrees. Students interested in the E&H pre-health program may pursue a number of undergraduate academic majors such as Exercise Science, Biology, Chemistry, Nursing, Psychology, and Equine Assisted Therapy, as well as graduate or doctoral degrees with preferred admission to programs such as Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Physician Assistant Studies, Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy at the E&H Health Sciences Campus in Marion.

The Pre-Health Program also sponsors or co-sponsors events intended to provide students greater access to professionals in healthcare fields, admissions representatives of graduate healthcare programs, and healthcare-related service opportunities, including the Pre-Health Panel. Students are offered the chance to speak with E&H alumni, each of whom is now in a healthcare-related graduate program or practicing professional.

The Pre-Health Program also sponsors the Pre-Health Club, a student organization that provides informational programs to students who are interested in pursuing graduate and professional training in healthcare. Many of our activities are entwined with the Pre-Health Club.  There are many levels of involvement to meet your interests!
