This interdisciplinary program enables students who are interested in the human side of health to explore a variety of fields by providing a hands-on experience in various health professions. Courses in this interdisciplinary major prepare students for professional programs in medicine but do not meet all of those entrance requirements. Students should consult their academic advisors for information on prerequisites and admission requirements for specific health fields.
