Bachelor of Science in
Pre-Sports Medicine


Program Overview

Admission to medical, dental and most other health profession schools in the United States is very selective. Only students with excellent grades and admission test scores, knowledge of their health profession and in most cases, health care experience are being admitted.

Oral Roberts University’s Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Pre-Sports Medicine is a residential program that will equip you to enter this emerging field. You will engage in a general set of courses based on the admission requirements of several representative schools in your field.

The ORU majors best suited for students interested in pre-sports medicine include biology with a health professions concentration, biomedical engineering or health and exercise science. It is recommended that a catalog be obtained from each school being considered for professional degree application to determine the exact requirements.
