Graduates of the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Physics have been very successful at gaining acceptance into medical school, dental school, pharmacy school, and other schools of the health professions. The curricula for both the BA degree in biochemistry and the BS degree in chemistry with biochemistry emphasis automatically fulfill the requisite coursework for most medical and health professional schools. The BA degree in biochemistry is often the preferred choice because the curriculum, by design, provides opportunity for such advanced coursework as human and vertebrate comparative anatomy, immunology, advanced human physiology, as well as medical or health-related internships.

Students interested in graduate health professions should Dr. Lisa Stephens at, a member of the College's Pre-Health Professions Committee, as soon as possible in their academic career.
