Dr. Carl Kaster (ckaster@sienaheights.edu) advises pre-professional students. It is recommended that students contact Dr. Kaster as soon as possible to explore specific requirements for their professional goals.

SHU biology graduates have a 95 percent acceptance rate into medical, chiropractic, podiatric, veterinary, and graduate school. Furthermore, the percentage of graduates who go on to earn an advanced degree (M.D., D.O., Ph.D., M.S., D.P.M., D.V.M., etc) is significantly higher than the national average (33 percent versus 23 percent).
