Medical Professions Advisement in the College of Arts and Sciences provides advisement and counseling to students entering East Tennessee State University in preparation for careers in the following health-related fields: chiropractic, dentistry, medicine (allopathic or osteopathic), optometry, pharmacy, physician assistant, podiatry, and veterinary medicine. These pre-professional tracks are not undergraduate majors at ETSU, but tracks that prepare students for application to professional programs. Many professional programs prefer/require that student’s earn an undergraduate degree before acceptance into their programs. Therefore, the student, medical professions counselor, and major advisor work in conjunction to develop a plan of study that fulfills the requirements for an undergraduate degree and prerequisite courses for the students professional school(s) of choice. Students are encouraged to choose a major that interests them and supports their career and personal goals. Questions concerning health-related pre-professional tracks should be directed to the Office of Medical Professions Advisement at (423) 439-5602.
