This option is for the students preparing to apply for admission into a professional school in one of the following areas: allopathic medicine, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic medicine optometry, or dentistry. Students interested in biomedical research may also consider this option. The curriculum includes supporting chemistry, physics, and mathematics course work.

The Department of Biology has numerous research and teaching labs that provide excellent opportunities for “hands-on” experiences. We have relationships with local health professionals and two regional hospitals, that provide numerous opportunities for volunteering, part-time employment, internships, and shadowing. Students may also choose to be involved in the Student Medical Society and Alpha Epsilon Delta honorary society.
