About the Undergraduate PMHPP
Preparing for a career in allopathic medicine, dentistry, osteopathic medicine, optometry, chiropractic medicine, podiatry, veterinary medicine or other health profession takes passion, hard work and solid, long-range planning. At Duquesne, that planning can start as early as your freshman year with our undergraduate Pre-Medical and Health Professions Program (UG-PMHPP).
Who We Are
The UG-PMHPP is not an academic major or degree, but rather it's a multi-track pre-professional program that provides you with comprehensive services, personalized advisement, and specialized coursework designed specifically to prepare you to pursue advanced medical, dental or other health professional education.
As a PMHPP student, you'll benefit from ongoing direction and dedicated support. Throughout your time at Duquesne, we'll help you evaluate your goals, develop the skills and competencies you'll need, and engage in unique and clinically relevant coursework, research and leadership opportunities that will help you stand out from the competition. Students who successfully complete our program may be eligible to earn a post-secondary certificate in Pre-Medical and Health Professions in addition to their academic major degrees.
