Prepare for your career in medicine and health-related sciences

On the Pre-Health Program, you’ll explore multicultural dimensions of healthcare delivery, along with the history of medicine, comparative health systems and socialized medicine while also taking compulsory science courses and laboratory classes through Arcadia’s prestigious academic partner institution, Queen Mary University of London. You will consider aspects of medicine, ethics and healthcare delivery in the development of the UK health system, with laboratory work and electives from a wide range of courses. If you plan to pursue a career in healthcare, this is a great program option.

  • You’ll take the Arcadia core course Health, Medicine & Society: A British Perspective (4 credits), choose one elective from Arcadia’s London Now program (4 credits), and two laboratory-based science courses geared toward junior and senior level students to be taken at Queen Mary University of London (4 credits each). An extra course at Queen Mary may be taken for additional credit and an additional fee.

  • You’ll be able to complete a discipline specific Co-curricular Learning Certificate (CLC) as part of the experiential education component to this program. These CLC opportunities include considering the role of the National Health Service and how the various constituent communities, such as immigrants and veterans, interact with a socialized health care system—or, design your own CLC with the help of our Arcadia London Center staff!

  • An optional preparatory course for the MCAT is available, along with an opportunity to take the exam in London.

  • Not able to go abroad for a full semester? A summer program with a concentrated focus in pre-health is also available!
