The Pre-Professional Program at Emmanuel College is designed to fulfill the admissions requirements for entrance into many professional medical programs including Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Doctor of Optometry, Doctor of Dentistry, etc. The program provides a challenging and rigorous course of study designed to prepare students to think critically, learn, retain and apply large amounts of information to successfully solve problems. Most graduate programs in the medical or dental fields require a test (MCAT, DAT, OAT, etc.) as part of the application, for which students will need to study and prepare to afford the best chance of entrance into the program of their choice. Since these requirements vary among these graduate programs, the student will need to review the entrance requirements for programs of interest to ensure that all requirements for that program are met.
