Preparatory courses of study are recommended courses based on a student’s vocational goals and desires for continued study on the graduate level. They do not represent individual majors, but courses of study to prepare students for further study in medicine, law, physical therapy, occupational therapy, or pharmacy. Preparatory programs may be taken in conjunction with any major and represent recommended sets of courses, not majors or minors. Students who desire to continue their educational pursuits in the following areas should consider the recommended course sequences outlined below.
Since medical schools differ in the details of their requirements, students should inquire as early as possible about the requirements of the schools of their choice so that their programs can be planned accurately. The Health Professions Committee has been established to advise and counsel the student and is especially helpful in the actual process of applying to medical school. The student must apply and be approved by the committee in order to use its services. The Health Professions Committee application process typically begins in the fall semester of Sophomore year. Please contact the pre-medicine advisor for application information and procedures.
