At UWM, “Pre-Physical Therapy”, “Pre-Med” and similar graduate/professional school preparation designations are not majors. Students must declare one of the School of Biomedical Sciences & Health Care Administration (BMSHCA) majors to pair with their “pre” designation.

Students who wish to complete a BMSHCA major as they pursue admission to graduate/professional school for further study in any of the following areas may receive advising for their undergraduate major and graduate/professional school preparation solely from their BMSHCA advisor:

  • athletic training (traditional MS or accelerated BS/MS)
  • communication sciences and disorders (speech-language pathology, audiology)
  • dietetics
  • health care informatics
  • kinesiology
  • occupational therapy
  • physical therapy

UWM offers many of these graduate programs, and in many cases, designated slots are set aside for our own students! Contact your advisor for details

Students who wish to complete a BMSHCA major while pursuing admission to a professional school for any of the following subjects receive joint advising from the College of Health Sciences (for their undergraduate major) and the College of Letters & Science (for professional school preparation):

  • chiropractic medicine
  • dentistry
  • general medicine
  • optometry
