Graduate and Pre-Professional Training

Physical Therapy class

If you wish to pursue a career as a doctor, physician assistant, veterinarian, optometrist, occupational or physical therapist, dentist or pharmacist, you need a strong background in the basic sciences. This will enable you not only to score well on entrance exams like the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), but also prepare you well for the high level of competition you'll face in your chosen professional field.

The School of Science at St. Scholastica offers students many paths to help attain their degree in the health profession. Most students major in biochemistry, biology, chemistry or psychology, but follow the appropriate requirements for their specific pre-professional program.
