Pre-Health Advising

There is no pre-medical major at Stony Brook, and there is no preferred major for undergraduates seeking entrance into doctoral-level health professions schools such as medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, podiatry, and veterinary medicine. It is not necessary to major in a natural science; rather, you should pursue a subject you enjoy. It is important to get good letters of recommendation from your professors. It is also important to gain appreciable health-related/research experience related to the field that interests you.
