The Pre-Professional Office has helped me in so many ways, especially Dr. Dean. She gave me valuable advice for my interview and application process. She helped ease some of my anxieties. I will never forget what the department did for me. I am greatly appreciative of their hard work.

I am so grateful that I came to complete my pre-medicine requirements at La Sierra University. The institution not only taught me science and prepared me for continuing my professional career - it also amplified my spiritual growth. Choosing to attend La Sierra University has been one of my life's most important decision.
Ivan Rybkin, Medical Student
The Pre-Health Professions Office at La Sierra University is a big reason why I was able to be a successful student. Dr. Dean and the rest of the office always took time to answer my questions and help me become a stronger candidate for medical school. The Pre-Professional Conference and classes like Introduction to Medicine were not only exciting, but they made the application process much easier. Dr. Dean connected me with mission-minded students that had a common future with me. I am so thankful to La Sierra and the Pre-Health Professions Office, because now I have a bright future.
Ryan Wycliffe, Medical Student
The science curriculum challenged me more than I expected when I transferred to La Sierra from a larger research university. I was not disappointed.
Andrew Correces, Student Missionary, Accepted To Dental School
Beginning freshman year, my advisor made sure that I was taking all of the classes required for application to medical school. The strong science curriculum eased the MCAT preparation for me. The Pre- Med Club deepened my understanding of the field by providing me with opportunities to become involved in medical settings as well as the community.
