Health Science: Pre-Professional Track
Few academic programs offer such diverse opportunities after graduation as the pre-professional option. This track will provide you with the academic background needed for entry into a variety of graduate school programs. For example, recent graduates have earned advanced degrees in medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, and other allied-health professions. It also provides preparation for employment in health related fields such as sales within the pharmaceutical or surgical/medical equipment industries.
You and your advisor will develop an individualized plan of study focused upon your specific goals and professional aspirations. Additional courses required to meet graduate program entry requirements are chosen as electives. Field experiences related to your intended career, such as working in a local clinic or observing surgery at a hospital, will give you valuable experience that further prepares you for graduate study. This is an excellent option if you are undecided about a specific career path.
