Health Science

 

“The health science program is a pre-professional program for those who want to go into medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, occupational therapy, optometry, or become a physician assistant. At Corban, you will have the opportunity to learn science from Christian professors who teach from a Christian perspective.”
- Jerry Johnson, Department Chair

Program Overview

The Department of Science offers a major in Health Science. This major is a pre-professional study for students interested in pursuing careers in the health care professions. Graduates may seek entrance to professional schools in medicine, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant, optometry, veterinary medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and medical informatics. Entrance requirements for these graduate programs vary; however, some basic courses are common to most. These common courses are the foundation of the Health Science Major. Electives in the major allow students to tailor their program of study to meet the specific entrance requirements of their chosen professional or graduate school. Students are encouraged to work closely with the program advisor of this major to plan a course of study to meet their educational objectives.
