Pre-Professional Department of UWF
A degree in Biology or Chemistry at the University of West Florida provides a great background for entrance into medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, and many other professional medical graduate programs.
The curriculum will help to prepare you for the entrance exams (MCAT, PCAT, OAT, DAT, etc.) as well as for success once enrolled in a graduate program.
Each of these these programs begins with a pre-professional core and offers individual professional advising as well as continued opportunities through partnerships with both regional and international medical schools.
Judith Bense, president of the University of West Florida, and Dick Woodward, president
for enrollment management, American University of Antigua, Kasturba Medical
Center, sign the agreement between the two institutions.
Students completing a bachelor’s degree in biology, marine biology, most interdisciplinary sciences, chemistry and the post-baccalaureate pre-professional program will have another opportunity to apply for entrance into medical school at Antigua’s College of Medicine.
The goal of AMEC is to train osteopathic physicians who will work in underserved regions of Alabama. Students interested in Family Practice, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology are encouraged to apply. AMEC is a dynamic partnership between The University of West Florida, 20 Alabama Colleges and Universities and 10 Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine.
The University of West Florida now offers a Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Professional Preparation Program (P4 Program) for students who hold a baccalaureate degree but do not have the science courses necessary to qualify for admission to a professional school.
“The P4 program serves as an ideal platform for students to take the courses necessary to successfully apply to medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, physical therapy and other professional schools in the health sciences arena.
