Science Prerequisites for Health Professions

*Please review the UNE Academic Catalog for the most up-to-date course descriptions and program information

Science Prerequisites for Health Professions (SPHP) courses are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but need one or two prerequisite courses in order to complete their graduate or medical school application.

Most of our SPHP students are either enrolled at another university already or have actually completed their undergraduate degree and just need one or two classes to satisfy their nursing prerequisites or medical school prerequisites.
