Health Professions Education and Career Resources

The Donaghey College of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics prepares students who want to apply to programs in the health professions after graduation.

What are the Health Professions?

Many students believe they must major in science to pursue these careers, but that is not true. You only need to:

  • Take the necessary prerequisite courses for the program in which you’re interested
  • Do well on the standardized admissions test
  • Volunteer with underserved populations
  • Obtain some clinical experience

You can find some more information, job sites, and general links at the bottom of this page.
