Health Careers

Each health profession has a different application process and deadlines. For this reason, we recommend you to view the page dedicated to your profession to grasp a greater understanding of the application process. If you then have further questions we encourage you to schedule an appointment. The pages to the left provide an overview of the application process for each health profession.

Extracurricular Involvement

Any student applying to professional school should be involved in extracurriculars in the following areas: 


Clinical experience is an essential part of investigating your future career choice. It will give you a realistic view of what the profession offers, and ultimately demonstrates to professional schools that you have taken the time to explore this career.


Volunteering is another avenue of exposure to the health field, gaining hands on experience, and helping the community. It is imperative that you explore the various types of volunteer work and start contacting the different programs to learn more about them. This will help you determine what health profession you would like to pursue, and if it is right for you.
