The medicine & healthcare minor provides a curricular framework for Clarkson undergraduates to pursue a course of study that will introduce them to the interdisciplinary range of knowledge and perspectives needed to be an effective health practitioner. The medicine & healthcare minor offers a broad framework of study that will appeal to the many Clarkson undergraduates who aspire to pursue careers in healthcare fields. Required and elective courses relate directly to health professional practice and provide a suitably broad coverage of topics.
The minor includes a seminar to familiarize students with the variety of health professional careers and introduce students to working health professionals. It also includes a mandatory experiential component. Depending on course selection, students can complete most or all of their Clarkson Common Experience requirements while completing this minor. However, the minor does not satisfy all prerequisites for all health profession graduate programs; for example, pre-med students must take additional biology, chemistry and physics courses.
