Pre-Medicine

As careers in health professions continue to be plentiful, applicants to the professional training programs become more numerous and requirements for admission into those programs becomes more stringent. One of the universal requirements for admission is a high grade point average. For this reason, students declaring interest in a health profession and entering K-State for the first time as freshmen will be admitted to the pre-health professions program (PHPP).
