For many years, Emory & Henry has been respected for the high quality of its pre-medical and allied health preparations. Recent graduates have pursued careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, and other fields. Members of the Health Professions Committee advise and oversee students on preparation for health and medical careers. Because health and medical fields require studies in the natural sciences--and science courses are offered sequentially at Emory & Henry--first-year students must carefully plan their schedules so as to begin the sequence on time. The committee provides information on admissions requirements, testing procedures, and related occupations. Students active in the Health Professions Club hold monthly meetings featuring speakers from various health fields, organize special events, and sponsor trips to visit medical schools. Students interested in health or medical careers should contact Dr. J.P. Barfield, pre-health advisor.
