Our Department

The Pre-Professional Department resides in the Leighty-Tabor Science Center, an 83,000-square-foot facility built in 2002. Its state-of-the-art labs serve all of the natural sciences at Millikin University, including Biology, Chemistry, Nursing and Pre-Professional Studies. The faculty of these departments work together to provide quality courses, lectures and labs for Pre-Professional majors.

The Pre-Professional Program at Millikin University dedicates its energy to preparing individuals for entry into and success in a post-graduate medical sciences program. Each student receives a liberal arts education with a firm foundation in science. Courses in science, social science, arts, and language balance those in biology and/or chemistry.

Individual monitoring of academic and professional goals and one-on-one contact with the program director set our program apart from others. Personalized mentoring invites you to become part of a community of learners and helps you focus on your coursework. Local internships and service opportunities provide hands-on enrichment and education, while an updated health-career library informs students of growing career opportunities.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Millikin offers on-campus admission exam preparation in the form of courses and review sessions. These sessions help you develop the skills needed to test into the post-graduate program of your choice.
