Academic Path for Physicians
There is a clearly defined academic path and timeline for pre-health students to complete their required medical education and training.
Allopathic (MD) and Osteopathic (DO) Medical Schools
Allopathic physicians (MD) and osteopathic physicians (DO) train side by side, take the same qualifying exams, and attend the same residency and fellowship programs.
Physician-Scientist (MD-PhD) Programs
Physician Scientist (MD-PhD) programs prepare pre-health students for research-focused careers in medicine and faculty teaching positions, often with extensive financial support.
Allied Health Professions
Haverford students pursue careers in all of the allied health professions, including dentistry, veterinary medicine, public health, pharmacy, physician assistant, physical therapy, and nursing, all of which play important roles in the delivery of patient care.
