Health Professions

Health professions preparation at Saint Anselm College offers courses which prepare you for graduate study in medicine (allopathic, osteopathic, and podiatric), dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant and any other allied health profession.

In the context of a liberal arts education, our students learn both the necessary sciences and how to be a truly caring health provider. The humanities program Portraits of Human Greatness offers students an understanding of humanism which can later be applied to their treatment of patients.

Students intending to pursue graduate schools in any of the allied health professions should contact Carolyn Weinreb, Ph.D., chief health professions advisor. Your choice of major field of study is independent of your ultimate career goals. As such, you will have an academic advisor within your major, however, it is imperative that you meet with the chief health professions advisor to insure that you are enrolled in the correct courses.
