Welcome Message from the Executive Director of Pre-Health Advisement

Welcome to Yeshiva College! The Pre-health Office looks forward to helping you prepare for an exciting and challenging career in the health professions. Over the past seven years (2013-2019) we have successfully assisted 296 pre-health students (200 medical and 95 dental.) During the same period, 55 students were admitted from YC to Albert Einstein College of Medicine. In 2019, we had an acceptance rate of 91% to medical school (29 acceptances for 32 applicants) and an acceptance rate of 90% to dental schools (9 acceptances for 10 applicants!)

To begin this process, you should visit our office as soon as you arrive on campus. Together we will create a polished and professional profile that will represent you well. You should know that there is a world beyond medicine and dentistry! While our acceptance rate to those programs are consistently double the national average (45%), over the past few years YU pre-health students have been accepted to programs for nursing, podiatry, optometry, physician's assistant and veterinary medicine. Take time to explore all the opportunities available to you. More information is available on the Allied Health Careers page to learn about salary ranges, professional associations and other important information. We also have many joint programs with local schools as well, so visit the Applying to Medical and Dental School for a full list. I'm happy to provide the complete picture as you make your plans.

Your dual curriculum is a challenging one! As a result, you will find yourself well-prepared for a rigorous course of study in your chose field. Working together we can help you prepare a schedule each semester that will be competitive yet realistic. The Pre-Health Office is here to help you reach your goals. Make use of all that YC has to offer and gain the skills and confidence you need to move forward successfully.
