Pre-Health and Study Abroad
Studying abroad during your time at Brandeis University can be very rewarding both academically and personally. An overseas experience can complement and enhance both your general program of study and your pre-health interests. Moreover, fluency in a language other than English and cross-cultural experience can enhance your readiness for health profession school and a medical career.
Many students with specific pre-professional interests can, with careful planning, arrange for a semester or a year of study abroad during their four years at Brandeis University. Summer study abroad programs also offer a great way to gain cross-cultural skills, participate in a health related internship program, and improve one's foreign language abilities. Pre-health students who wish to study abroad should begin planning early, and may need to arrange their time away from Brandeis University around the application process to health profession school. Complete information on all available study abroad programs can also be found on the study abroad website.
Please make an appointment with an advisor to discuss possible timelines for completing your pre-health course work and studying abroad.
