Test Preparation Resources

Entry into most professional health schools requires students to perform well on Standardized Admission Tests.  Since standardized tests are a way of life in health care, you will want to develop the skills necessary to succeed on them over the course of your undergraduate degree. 

  • OAT (Optometry Admission Test)
  • DAT (Dental Admission Test)
  • MCAT (Medical College Admission Test -- also required by most podiatry schools)
  • GRE  (Graduate Record Exam -- required by many PT, OT and PA programs.  Also required by most graduate schools).

Professional health schools also expect students to have a well-rounded understanding of current issues, research and ethics that are faced on a daily basis when working in the medical field.

The resources listed below will help you to prepare for admissions tests for professional health schools, and you may even find them useful in your current studies!
