This concentration provides a solid foundation in biology and the flexibility to meet prerequisites for graduate and professional programs for a variety of health professions. Students who intend to pursue graduate and/or professional training in physical therapy, nursing, physicians assistant programs, occupational therapy and other similar programs will be well served in this concentration. (Please note that the biomedical concentration is recommended for pre-medical students) Students need to be aware of any specific requirements of particular graduate/professional programs that are not included in the health professions concentration so that they can work with their advisor to make arrangements for any additional courses as needed. Pre-nursing students should normally plan to take BIO 220, BIO 221 and BIO 340 as electives. Pre-physical therapy students should normally plan to take BIO 220, BIO 221 and PSE 433 as electives.
