Iowa State University is a great place to prepare for careers in health and medicine. As a major research university with an exceptional student experience, we’re excited to help you create a competitive application for medical or professional school.
Our students are well-regarded when it comes to applying for professional school. Alumni have been accepted to programs at Harvard, University of Iowa, Johns Hopkins University, Pritzker School of Medicine, Des Moines University, Washington University and many others.
Personalized advising for pre-med, pre-health students
As a pre-medical or pre-health student at Iowa State, you will have two advisors. You’ll meet with your academic advisor in your major to plan the coursework to meet your degree requirements for your major.
You are also encouraged to meet with our pre-professional health advisor. We help with:
- Academic planning to combine your degree requirements and the prerequisites for medical or professional school
- Application assistance
- Health profession exploration (deciding what fields fit your strengths and interests)
- Guidance on alternate paths if your goals change
