University College also advises pre-health major students seeking to enter professional health fields including communication sciences and disorders, dental hygiene, nursing, nutritional sciences, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician’s associate, radiologic technologies and veterinary medicine. The assistance of an advisor is especially important to the pre-health profession student who wants to complete his/her admission requirements while maintaining a competitive grade point average for admission to the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (HSC).
