Compiling a list of Pre-Health Students eligible for Scholarships and Awards
The Willamette University Pre-Health Program is an academic program whose purpose is to provide resources, offer career opportunities, academic advising, and career guidance to all students garnering an interest in the medical or healthcare field. The Program includes students with a wide range of majors and who plan to pursue careers in a variety of fields, whether that is pediatrics, public health, or health administration. While the Pre-Health Program on campus is not the same as an academic major, it was established to support and guide students who plan to pursue a career related to healthcare in any way.
In order to better serve the Willamette and Pre-Health community, we are writing to invite you to sign up for our Pre-Health Program mailgroup.
