Engineering students interested in a health related career may pursue any of the 14 majors offered by the College of Engineering. While some majors have more overlap with coursework required for pre-health, it is important for every student to select the engineering major best suited for his/her interests and strengths.

Pre-Health Advising Through Engineering Advising:

Students interested in pre-health are encouraged to prioritize the requirements of the Engineering Common Curriculum and their major affiliation during their first and second year. Engineering Advising can assist students with understanding how pre-health courses may or may not overlap with the various majors within the College of Engineering and how to best integrate the pre-health coursework within the Engineering curriculum.

Be sure to make an appointment with Engineering Advising to further discuss your options. 

Pre-Health Advising Through Health Professions Advising Center:

Cornell's resource for all students interested in pre-health is the Health Professions Advising Center (HPAC) office and website. This office serves students interested in a variety of pre-health professional pathways  and assists students at various stages of exploration, preparing for, and applying to pre-health programs.
