Rockhurst offers pre-health advising to students who plan to continue on to schools of medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. Students interested in health care can major in any RU degree program. Pre-health advisors work with students to develop an individualized plan. Health professional schools require a combination of academic achievement, professional development, volunteering, and leadership.
