Pre-Health at Nebraska

As a student interested in pursuing a career in health care, Pre-Health at Nebraska is the best way for you to discover the many opportunities that await you as a pre-health student at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

During this unique campus visit opportunity, you'll quickly see why Nebraska's pre-health students are so successful. As part of your campus tour, you and your parent(s) or guardian(s) will visit the university's labs and pre-health facilities while exploring each of the university's 16 different pre-health disciplines—from medicine, nursing and dentistry, to physical therapy, pharmacy and public health. By engaging with pre-health advisors and a panel of current students from a variety of fields, you'll leave feeling more confident about the future you want to pursue.

With more pre-health students graduating from Nebraska than any other school in the state, when you're here, you're exactly where you need to be.

Program Fee: $10 per person. Sorry, no refunds on program fees.
