Pre-Med

Texas Lutheran University is well known for its excellent pre-professional programs in the health professions. 

Students work directly with Pre-Med faculty members to prepare for these professions.


Pre-Med

Texas Lutheran offers pre-professional programs in the following health professions:

  • Dentistry
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Occupational therapy
  • Optometry
  • Pharmacy
  • Physician Assistant
  • Physical Therapy
  • Veterinary Science

Prerequisites for clinically-related programs change frequently. Students interested in pursuing careers in these programs should contact members of the Health Professions Committee for individualized advising. Current Health Professions Advisors, who are members of the Health Professions Committee, will help students determine which courses to take, how best to obtain exposure to the desired career field, and how best to prepare to take entry examinations for professional schools. Committee members will also provide letters of recommendation for students applying to professional programs, will help students prepare their professional school applications, and will offer practice interview sessions for those invited to interview at professional schools. A student should contact committee members as soon as he/she has identified a health profession as a career goal. In this way, advisors can maximize their effectiveness in helping a student with his/her pursuits.

Pre-Med students at TLU often major in related programs like Molecular Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry.
