Pre-Professional Program at Russell Sage College and Sage College of Albany

Advances in health care and medicine and a growing number of fields of specialization are making doctors, veterinarians, and physician assistants more in demand than ever.

If you are ready to be a part of the exciting and growing field of medicine and health care, then this program may be for you. You can be part of this ever-changing and respected profession and discover how you can positively impact the lives of others.

Preparing for a career in medicine (physician, veterinarian, dentist, physician assistant) is one of the biggest challenges you can undertake and one of the most rewarding.

Our pre-medical advisors will answer your questions and help you with course selection to build the strongest background possible. Undergraduate pre-medical students complete a senior research project and often complete an internship to make them highly competitive for professional schools. Your adviser will help you prepare applications, write your personal statement, and practice your interview skills.

Students who already have a B.A. or B.S. and wish to apply to medical, dental, veterinary, or physician assistant programs can complete our Certificate program in Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Studies at the School of Professional and Continuing Education.
