Medical Professions Advisement Program


The Medical Professions Advisement Program in the College of Arts and Sciences provides advisement to students entering East Tennessee State University in preparation for careers in the following health-related fields: Pre-Chiropractic, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Medicine (Allopathic or Osteopathic), Pre-Optometry, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Podiatry, and Pre-Veterinary Medicine. The above-mentioned programs are not undergraduate majors at East Tennessee State University; however, they are programs of study that prepare students for application to professional programs. Many professional programs prefer/require students to attain an undergraduate degree before acceptance into their programs; therefore, the student, medical professions advisor, and major advisor work in conjunction to complete necessary requirements for fulfillment of an undergraduate degree and prerequisite courses for the professional school(s) of choice. Students are encouraged to choose majors in which they are interested. Questions concerning health-related programs of study should be directed to the Office of Medical Professions Advisement Program, PO Box 70592, East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, TN 37614, (423) 439-5602.
