Pre Health Programs Furman University

Furman has designed two programs that allow high school students and incoming freshman to explore a career in medicine and healthcare. These special programs prepare students for making the transition from high school to college.

summer scholars

Summer Scholars is a one-week program that offers rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to discover what it's like to study at Furman. As part of the program, we offer a Pre-Health course that teaches students what it's like to practice medicine in the 21st century. This course allows students how to explore patient care through a case study of diagnosing and treating a patient from start to finish. More than a traditional classroom experience, this course offers students the chance to participate in a bioskills laboratory and hear from working professionals during healthcare facility visits.

Engaged Living

Engaged Living is Furman's living and learning community that allows our incoming freshman to study with faculty and peers who share their interests. One of the topics offered within this program is Healthcare Today. This program gives students who are considering a professional health career the opportunity to examine various aspects of the healthcare industry and find out how to be a successful member of a healthcare team.
