University of Kansas PreHealth

KU PreHealth has 14 different paths for students. These range from BS, MS, and PhD paths in the different PreHealth areas. At KU, we want PreHealth students to succeed in not only their studies during their undergraduate career, but also as students on a professional level.

Our Mission

We will provide guidance through the student life cycle of KU undergraduate admission, major declaration and professional development, up until admission into a professional health program.

Passion for people, public service and medicine intersect: Sana Cheema is always alert for those eureka moments, when a new passion emerges that demands attention. This open-minded can-do attitude means that when lightning strikes, Sana commits, determined to do the best she can in her studies, campus leadership and future career as a physician.

When a high school science experiment won Sana top prize in the State of Kansas, she took this as a sign to keep asking questions about the world around us and enrolled as a biology major at KU.
