You can be something besides a doctor and still have a career in healthcare and wellness. Positions in allied health, public/global health, mental health, business, and research are just a few examples of different paths to pursue.

If you have an interest in professional programs in healthcare, please consider making an appointment to see a Pre-Health Advisor.
