BS Health Sciences: Pre-Podiatry

University of Hartford

The combined Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (BS/DPM) program between the University of Hartford and New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) provides a unique opportunity for students with career goals in podiatry. The accelerated program typically allows for the completion of the BS/DPM degrees in a seven-year period.

The BS/DPM program is for the academically outstanding student with strong, realistic motivation toward the podiatric profession. Initial study at the University of Hartford allows you to complete the general education and basic science requirements for the BS in health sciences degree and the prerequisites necessary for professional study.

The BS degree is awarded by the University of Hartford following the successful completion of the first year of graduate study.  Students who are not in the accelerated program typically complete the BS degree in four years at the University of Hartford.

The podiatry program requires four years of combined academic and clinical training leading to the DPM degree, which is a prerequisite for licensure eligibility in the United States. The New York College of Podiatric Medicine provides students with an accredited four-year professional podiatry curriculum.

Admission to the University of Hartford does not guarantee admission to the graduate program. You must complete an application for the graduate program after the second year of study at UHart.
