What You’ll Learn
Admission to health professions programs like medical school requires hard work, determination, and persistence on your part.
Our program is not a major, but instead provides advisors who will work with you to develop a portfolio of credentials that can lead to successful application to a health professions program.
All of the health professions have a set of courses and academic competencies that they are looking for in their successful applicant. We help students select the courses that will meet these requirements.
We prepare students for study in the following areas:
- Medicine (MD & DO)
- Physician Assistant (PA)
- Dentistry (DDS or DMD)
- Veterinary Medicine (DVM)
- Optometry (OD)
- Pharmacy (PharmD)
- Podiatry (DPM)
We recommend submitting first-year applications in October or early November. We decide your admission once you complete your application.

How We Can Help You Be Successful
Successful applicants to health professions schools need to have more than a high GPA and standardized test score.
We can advise on:
- Getting involved in a research project, either here with a Brockport faculty member or at another institution.
- Getting experience in a medical setting through employment, volunteering, or shadowing members of the health professions.
- Demonstrating leadership ability on and off campus.
- Participating in service to your community.
According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, healthcare employment opportunities are projected to grow 19% from 2014 to 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. As a result, there will be 2.3 million more jobs — more than any other group of occupations.
This growth is expected due to an aging population and because federal health insurance reform should increase the number of individuals who have access to health insurance.

“I have felt as prepared - or in some cases better prepared than - my colleagues. There are students from Cornell, Harvard, NYU, Michigan and every other well-known university in my classes, and I couldn’t be happier with my experience at Brockport.” Vince Badali
