Pre-Professional Health programs

This office also coordinates all health science practica and is responsible for clinical affiliations, external funding and accreditation of the university's pre-professional health programs.

The College of Science offers ten undergraduate pre-professional health programs to prepare students for professional studies in a health-related career. Students on a health-related track can earn a bachelor's degree in Health Science through the Department of Biological Sciences.

In addition, the allied partnerships offered through the Pre-Professional Health Programs allow students to complete their degrees while serving clinical internships at area hospitals, health care faciilties and universities. There is also a dual-acceptance program with Chicago College of Pharmacy at Midwestern. All of the University's allied health programs are accredited and meet the highest professional standards, ensuring the Benedictine graduates are among the most sought-after candidates by nationally-recognized professional schools.
