UB Freshmen “Prehealth 101” Online Course
Prehealth 101 is an online course, accessed through UBLearns, and is the starting point for all first-year students interested in pursuing a career as a doctor, dentist, physician assistant, veterinarian, optometrist, chiropractor, or podiatrist.
In order for a first-year student at UB to meet with a prehealth advisor, they must first complete all modules of the Prehealth 101 course.
Prehealth freshmen will be contacted via their UB email accounts around mid-September with information about how to access Prehealth 101. If you have not received this information by October 1, please contact Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
