Claire Cornell

Uncertain about what to take in the Fall? Consider these health-related courses! While taking your pre-requisite classes is important, also consider how some of these courses may give you broader knowledge of healthcare, leadership, and much more to prepare you for a career in the health professions!

Please note, this is not a complete listing of health-related courses or pre-requisite requirements for health professional schools. Additionally, some courses on this may have their own pre-requisite courses which may prevent your enrollment. Please speak with your academic advisor and pre-health advisor when solidifying course selections.
