Clarkson offers a range of pre-health science programs preparing you for medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, occupational therapy, physical therapy school or a physician assistant program.
All of these healthcare careers are among the Top 20 Best Healthcare Jobs according to U.S. News and World Report 2020. At Clarkson, we strive to prepare our students to successfully reach their career goals and aspirations. This is done through special advising and personalized attention, access to state-of-the-art facilities and resources, relevant coursework such as our Health Coaches class and minors such as our minor in Medicine and Healthcare, and opportunities for hands-on research opportunities within the scope of medicine and healthcare.
In our Pre-Health Sciences tracks, students pursue a major of their choosing, such as biology, psychology or chemical engineering, and then work with a team of Clarkson faculty and staff to ensure they are prepared for the next stage in their education or career.
We currently offer Pre-Health Sciences tracks in:
- Pre-physical therapy (feeds into Clarkson’s Doctor of Physical Therapy)
- Pre-occupational therapy (feeds into Clarkson’s MS in Occupational Therapy)
- Pre-physician assistant (feeds into Clarkson’s MS in Physician Assistant Studies)
