Many Biology majors and minors intend to pursue careers in the Health Professions. This includes such programs as medical, dental, veterinary, nursing, physician’s assistant, physical therapist, etc.  This page contains information regarding how students can prepare for applying to and gaining admission into these programs. The information is sorted by year, but this is not meant to imply that failure to do any of these things at a particular time will make it impossible to successfully apply.  Rather, this is meant to provide an idea about a “typical” path.
