Oklahoma Christian's pre-med programs, housed in the updated Herold Science Hall and the renowned Gaither Center for Biology, prepare students interested in medical careers to reach their goals. As a college that offers pre-med programs in Oklahoma City, we are proud of a better than 90% medical school acceptance rate for qualified students. Academic rigor, small class sizes, excellent lab facilities and a caring faculty who walk students through the process of application, are some of the reasons that make Oklahoma Christian's pre-med programs among our most popular academic pursuits.
Adaptable programs include:
- Pre-occupational therapy
- Pre-physical therapy
- Pre-physician associate
There are many professional programs in the health sciences available to students, requiring a variety of preparations for admittance. Those students wanting to become physicians (M.D. or D.O.), dentists, optometrists, podiatrists, chiropractors, and veterinarians will usually need to complete a B.S. degree before being accepted into a post-graduate program.
Requirements at different professional schools vary so students should decide at which schools they plan to seek admissions and work closely with their OC faculty advisors to make certain that all entrance requirements are met. Oklahoma Christian has an excellent record of acceptances into a number of professional schools.
