Our academic program will challenge you. The courses will help you prepare for entrance exams (MCAT, DCAT, OAT, etc.) and to thrive in professional school. Students strengthen their professional competencies through off-campus study, internships, work in clinical settings, and research.
Luther College alums report being well-prepared for professional schools, from medical school to physical therapy.
"I chose Luther because I could study in a strong biology program while receiving a great liberal arts education."
“My coursework in biology at Luther helped prepare me and make me successful during graduate school. I also learned how to think and work through complex problems, which is an invaluable skill in medicine.”
The foundation of Pre-Health Studies at Luther is formed from three core elements: Academics, Experiences, and Relationships. We ensure each of these is included in every student’s education.
