Health Sciences Special Admission Programs and Affiliations
Once students are selected for one of these programs and begin their undergraduate education, they will receive assistance from the Center for Health Sciences and Student Success in advising them through their special program of study and in the application process to the health professions school. Students will be expected to maintain a high GPA and participate in shadowing experiences and volunteer activities during their time at Wilkes. In addition, students will need to meet the requirements of each individual health professions institution.
