Professional School in the Health Sciences
Medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, and veterinary medicine are among the most desired career paths for students entering college as a science major. Saint Anselm College offers all of the courses required for entrance into these schools. The Biology Department offers a General Biology (BI 03-04) course that is required for admission to most professional schools, as well as a number of additional courses that can help to prepare you for a career in the health sciences.
A health professions advisor (Prof. Carolyn Weinreb, Chemistry Department) is available to help you plan your undergraduate experience (both academic and extracurricular) so that you are best prepared to apply to and ultimately succeed in one of these schools. The health professions advisor is available to all students considering a career in health care, whether their decision is firm or the idea is one of several that they have in mind. The advisor also helps those who plan to apply for entry-level Master's programs in the allied health fields such as Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physician's Assistant programs. It is suggested that you meet with Prof. Weinreb early in your college career if you are interested in pursuing a career in any of these areas.
