Pre-Med and Health Science Center (PMHSC)
WSU's PMHSC provides prerequisite advising, academic support, and professional development strategies for all WSU students pursuing admission to competitive health care programs. Currently, advisors are seeing students who are interested in dental school, medical school, nursing programs, optometry school, pathologists' assistant programs, physician assistant programs, podiatry school and veterinary school.
Pre-health advisors will work with you to discuss degree options and help you plan your prerequisite coursework. In addition, pre-health advisors are knowledgeable in the professional preparation — such as extracurricular experiences, leadership, service and health-care exposure — that medical programs value. We will challenge you to develop a strong portfolio of engagement while maintaining the high standards of academic excellence that you need to compete in the admissions process.
Plan to meet regularly with a pre-health advisor and prepare to join thousands of WSU alumni practicing in health care professions. Admitted WSU students who need assistance in scheduling an appointment with an advisor in the PMHSC can watch find resources on the Stars 2.0 Student Help Center.
