Pre-Medicine & Allied Health

Davidson has a rich tradition in the pre-professional training of doctors, and its students are and continue to become leaders in the medical profession. The liberal arts education you receive here prepares you, as a future health professions provider, to meet the challenges and shoulder the responsibilities that await you.

The Pre-Medicine Program historically has been directed toward allopathic medicine (M.D.) and that emphasis continues today, so the information on our program pages is written largely for students with this interest. However, we can provide information about other options in the health professions, including osteopathic medicine, podiatric medicine, dental medicine, pharmacy, optometry, physical therapy, physician's assistant, public health, nursing, etc.  No matter what your interest is, you should meet with the program director early in your academic career to begin discussing a health career.

Becoming a physician is one of society's highest achievements and presents unique opportunities for self-fulfillment and service to humanity. Your decision to pursue a medical career will require much of you. As you grow in your commitment to this career, we know that you will find great reward and satisfaction.
