Pre-Health Preparation

A Biology degree aligns well with the course requirements for many health professions graduate programs, including medical school (MD or DO), physician assistant (PA) and dentistry programs.  Biology majors have also gone on to pursue physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), nursing, pharmacy, and other health professions.  If you want to pursue a health profession and major in Biology, talk with your academic advisor about the selection of courses that will best prepare you.  In addition, the Pre-Health Program offers resources on Choosing a Healthcare Profession that can help you to prepare.
