Pre-Professional Health Programs at EOU

Pre-Professional Health Programs at EOU


Depending upon the academic area the College of Arts & Sciences offers coursework paralleling requirements of universities from which degrees in those areas are offered.


Health Speaker Series

EOU and the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center, in partnership, launched the health speaker series with the goal of providing students interested in pursuing healthcare careers the opportunity to hear first-hand experiences from members of the area medical community.  In addition to the presentations by the medical community, students learn more about the application and admission process from representatives from graduate health programs.
