Pre-Health Students

A majority of our entering students designate themselves as “pre-health” or “pre-med.” While UCLA does not currently have a specified pre-health or pre-med program per se, many Life Sciences undergraduates go on to careers in clinical health. For students interested in pursuing a pre-health/pre-med track, there are advisors and resources available to help. More information can be found on our Pre-Health page.
