Preprofessional Programs

Prehealth Professions Program

Samford University has a long tradition of preparing students for careers as physicians, dentists, optometrists, and veterinarians. Students interested in the health professions may major in any discipline and are guided through their prerequisite courses by the health professions advisory committee. The committee currently consists of Dr. Jim Angel, Dr. David Garza, and Dr. George Keller. The committee talks with students about their career goals, and facilitates the preparation of the letter of evaluation required by all professional schools.

Samford University also has an active Alpha Epsilon Delta chapter. AED sponsors service projects, visits to local professional schools, speakers, and social events.
