PCS Pre-Med/Pre-Health

The Fordham Pre-Med/Pre-Health Program of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies (PCS) is for college graduates interested in a career in the health professions but still in need of the prerequisite science courses.

In keeping with the PCS mission to serve adult students, the program offers the pre-med curriculum primarily in the evening, on weekends, and during the summer to prepare students for application to medical, dental or veterinary schools, nursing, physician assistant or physical therapy programs.

Classes are offered at Fordham's Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, and Westchester campuses. A limited number of day classes are also available during the academic year.
