Health ProfessionsHealth professions at Concordia College offer preparation for nine professional programs.
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Physician Assistant
- Veterinary Medicine
Most students major in biology or chemistry—both programs offer honors majors—but any major is possible. We also offer a unique Health Professions Advisory Committee made up of three professors who work with you all four years to complete the committee evaluation for your professional school applications. Mentor with health professionals, dissect a human cadaver and travel abroad in places such as Kenya, Tanzania and the Galapagos Islands.
Each of the health professions program specialities have similar basic requirements; therefore, you’ll have the opportunity to explore multiple career options before making a final decision. Common prerequisite courses include:
- At least 8 credits in biology
- 16 credits in chemistry
- 4 or 8 credits in mathematics
- 8 credits in physics
