Preprofessional Programs

George Fox University is pleased with the excellent success students have had in gaining admission to medical, dental, and veterinary programs. Students who wish to pursue a career in medicine, dentistry or veterinary medicine usually select a major in biology or chemistry. They may, however, choose any academic major the university offers as long as they take certain specific courses required by the professional schools. George Fox University offers all of the science and mathematics courses required by the professional schools of the region.

It is important to consult with your academic advisor early in setting up a plan for a strong program. Students should be aware that, in addition to meeting the minimal entrance requirements, good grades (3.5-grade point average or above) and a strong performance on the national admission tests (MCAT, DAT, and VAT, usually taken in the spring of the junior year) are essential. Also necessary for admission are letters of recommendation and an interview with the professional school's admission committee.

Our world needs Christian health professionals strong in character and maturity who have had broad educational and social experiences. George Fox University offers excellent opportunities to build these qualities through academic courses in areas such as ethics, psychology, computer science, literature, history, and foreign languages, and through varied social opportunities.
