Getting into a professional school to pursue an advanced degree in the healthcare field is no easy feat, as any doctor, dentist, pharmacist, or veterinarian can tell you. But the students in the Pre-Health Program at UAH must have missed that memo, because their acceptance rate blew the national average out of the water this past year. &quot;Pre-health students are a group of dedicated, ambitious, and driven individuals,&quot; says Dana Warner, UAH's Coordinator of Pre-Health Professions. &quot;The 2013-2014 cycle of pre-health students who applied for 2014 acceptance to professional school were a remarkable bunch. I am delighted to work with them, know their stories, and see their future career paths unfold.&quot; So what's the secret to their success? As Warner is quick to point out, there's no one sure path to getting into professional school for a healthcare career. In fact, quite the opposite, as many schools look for students with diverse and unique experiences. But one thing is certain. The journey starts with a strong and innate desire to help others.
