The Pre-Health Sciences major is a program that prepares students to apply for health-related programs at CNM, as well as to transfer to UNM or other four-year degree programs in numerous health-related fields. It fulfills the general education core courses for 4-year degrees required by the state of New Mexico and the University of New Mexico core curriculum.

This two year program is designed to prepare students for medical school.  The courses included in the program are those required as prerequisites for the UNM School of Medicine (SOM) and most schools of medicine nationwide.
