Do not try to guess what “looks good” to health professional schools. Instead, get the most you can out of your undergraduate education.
It is who you are, and how well educated you are when you get into the health professional school, that is important.
- Take elective courses that are meaningful and interesting to you.
- Include courses in the arts and humanities.
In addition to the above, we suggest that students take advantage of the 7-week, 2-course interim program in London (May-June) (INDS 245: Ethical and Social Issues in Healthcare in the UK and in the US).
Students should also consider:
- A&S 222 Medical Anthropology
- Biol 213 Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy
- Biol 251 Human Physiology (HPAC recommended)
- Biol 274 Bioinformatics
