New Pre-Health Professions Students

We welcome you to the UT Austin Health Professions Community! The Health Professions Office is here to guide you in your exploration of and preparation for application to health professions schools. Here you will find a large and diverse community of pre-health professions students, estimated at more than 5,000 students, pursuing studies in most of the colleges and schools across our campus. To see the pre-health professions courses that you will incorporate into your degree plan, please click on your chosen profession from our Health Professions page. For each health profession, we provide a prerequisite courses list and a timeline that shows what your academic path may look like.


The Health Professions Office knows there is a lot of information about being a pre-health student, and it can be overwhelming! Our resources tab links you to information that covers the different guides & resources HPO has put together for different steps of the application, starting from day one.
