All of these have similar requirements, so you can explore multiple career options before making a final decision.
Most students major in biology and chemistry, but you can choose any major. What’s important is that you have the necessary prerequisites for your program. Common prerequisites include: 8 credits in biology, 16 credits in chemistry, 4 or 8 credits in mathematics, 8 credits in physics.
Bonus: Schools in the health professions recommend a broad liberal arts undergraduate education (like Concordia’s) so that you will be prepared to relate well to people and communicate effectively.
In addition, we encourage you to be mentored by local health professionals and study abroad in places such as Tanzania and Bangladesh.
