  • Conversely, the regaining of physical abilities once taken for granted can be the turning point in a recovery. The physical therapist often spearheads this effort as coach, cheerleader, and guide on the path to greater health.
  • All of MTSU's Health Science Pre-Professional Programs require a good amount of shadowing—of following and observing professionals in the field as they go through the daily routine.

Shadowing allows beginners to see, smell, hear, and feel what happens during a day on the job.

General Requirements

  • Admission to the MTSU pre-professional program does not assure admission to a professional program. In the beginning of the third year, the student should make application to the program of choice, following the procedures of the particular program. Selection for admission is competitive and is made by the admissions committee of the respective program according to its selection standards.
  • The limits on class size in most of the professional programs may prevent acceptance of some qualified applicants. In the event a first application is unsuccessful, the program may be easily changed to a Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Biology major leading to a B.S. degree, and then application may be made a second time.
