Because there is no “standard” prehealth track at Bryn Mawr, students have the autonomy to develop their own academic plans in consultation with their dean, faculty advisors, and the prehealth advisor. Ultimately, prehealth students should major in subjects that capture their intellectual passion.

Students can consider the special academic opportunities they’d like to participate in at Bryn Mawr (such as 360° Course Clusters, Praxis courses and independent study, and study abroad). With advance planning, many students find ways to pursue a compelling major and other lively academic and extracurricular involvements while fulfilling the prequisities for the health professions schools that interest them.  

Make an appointment with Assistant Dean Gail G. Glicksman to discuss your prehealth pathway:, 610-526-7350.
