Pre-Osteopathic

Pre-Osteopathic

Question and scrutinize everything, even if it is held emotionally close or assumed to be a first principle. Ask yourself, ‘Where is the evidence for this? What does the evidence really suggest?’ Also, you are paying to be in a room with experts at SHU; learn everything you can and take advantage of this opportunity.

  • About: Pre-Osteopathic

Applicants to schools of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry and veterinary medicine may major in any discipline at the undergraduate level. Since the required courses for admission tend to be heavy in the sciences, most students at Siena Heights aspiring to study for these professions major in biology.

Dr. Carl Kaster (ckaster@sienaheights.edu) advises pre-professional students. It is recommended that students contact Dr. Kaster as soon as possible to explore specific requirements for their professional goals.


FAST FACT: SHU biology graduates have a 95% acceptance rate into medical, chiropractic, podiatric, veterinary, and graduate school. Furthermore, the percentage of graduates who go on to earn an advanced degree (M.D., D.O., Ph.D., M.S., D.P.M., D.V.M., etc) is significantly higher than the national average (33% versus 23%).
