Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental,
Pre-Veterinary Medicine and Pre-Optometry Programs

The Pittsburg State University pre-medical/pre-dental\pre-veterinary/pre-optometry program allows students to pursue interests in pre-medicine (prepare for entry into medical, osteopathic, and dental schools or graduate medical research programs), pre-physical therapy (prepare for entry into further specialization in physical and occupational therapy), cell and molecular biology (prepare for graduate school or entry-level employment in biotechnology), and medical technology (prepare for employment in hospitals or private labs). Note: The department also offers pre-professional work in optometry and veterinary medicine. 

See additional information on the Academic Programs page and on the Biology Careers page under Health and Laboratory Sciences.
