Pre-Med and Pre-Health
Whittier students who plan to pursue careers as doctors, dentists, optometrists, chiropractors, or veterinarians select a closely related major and receive specialized guidance from a select group of professors throughout their time at Whittier.
Starting in their first year, pre-health students build experience in the lab, in the field, and in the classroom, ensuring they develop the investigative and professional skills they'll need for admission to and success in a professional school.
Kinesiology majors at Whittier College can declare a Pre-Physical Therapy emphasis that will prepare them for admission to Doctor of Physical Therapy programs after completing their Bachelor's degree at Whittier. Pre-Physical Therapy students work closely with highly-regarded professors in Whittier's Kinesiology department to ensure they select the right courses and electives throughout their time at Whittier.
