Pre-med programs

Preparing for the next step

Before attending the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, students must have earned a bachelor’s degree at a U.S. college or university, including WSU Vancouver. Although the degree may be in any field, certain programs at WSU Vancouver provide a good foundation for medical education.

Biology, pre-health emphasis

The undergraduate major in biology gives you the experience you need to become a strong candidate for a health professional school—whether medical, dental, pharmacy, veterinary or another field.


The undergraduate major in neuroscience is interdisciplinary, combining biology and psychology. It is designed to prepare you for pre-medicine and other health-related fields.
