Meet Robert, a Religious Studies and Pre-Med Double Major
Hear how Stonehill is helping him attain his dreams of helping others.
Stonehill does not offer a major in any one of the pre-health disciplines. Students pursuing one of these career paths most commonly choose to major in one of the sciences (Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry or Neuroscience). However, choosing to major in a non-science discipline is certainly a viable option. Regardless of the major you choose, what is important is that you take the courses that are prerequisites for the professional schools to which you intend to apply as well as those that will sufficiently prepare you to take the appropriate standardized entrance examination (MCAT,DAT or OAT).
Andrew, an assistant director in the Office of Career Services, is the principal Pre-Health Professions advisor. He will work closely with you to ensure that you are well-informed about and prepared for the application process for professional school. Developing a strong working relationship with your academic advisor and the principal Pre-Health Professions advisor will ensure that you develop an appropriate four-year academic plan that not only includes the necessary prerequisite courses but also valuable clinical (e.g., shadowing, internship, work and volunteer) and research experiences.
Craig Almeida, dean of academic achievement, will work with pre-health professions school applicants during the application process to both arrange interviews with Stonehill’s Pre-Health Professions Advisory Committee and to coordinate the writing and submission of composite committee letters of evaluations.
