Pre-Allied Health Science Curricula

In addition to the pre-professional curricula offered in medicine, dentistry, optometry and pharmacy, Tennessee Technological University also offers preprofessional programs in auxiliary or paramedical specialties of the health professions, including medical technology, dental hygiene, physical therapy, health information management, and others.

Students who wish to apply for admission to an allied health professional program without a degree from Tennessee Technological University should follow one of the programs listed under the pre-professional programs and consult with a pre-professional health science advisor. These programs closely fit requirements of most professional schools. Students desiring a Bachelor of Science degree from a professional school should plan to meet the requirements of that professional school.
