Preparing for a Career in Medicine and Health Care

Whether you hope to become a physician, pharmacist, or another type of health professional, Clark is committed to helping you find the right path toward YOUR career. Our low student-faculty ratio means you will get to know your professors through small classes and research collaboration. Outside of Clark, Worcester abounds with hospitals and other healthcare settings for opportunities to intern, volunteer, network, job-shadow, and more.

Planning Your Path

Most medical and other professional schools require you to take specific courses during your undergraduate career, so it’s important to plan your schedule early. From choosing your major to selecting preprofessional courses, Clark’s Prehealth Advising Program is here to help.

Applying to Medical and Professional Schools

Most accredited U.S. medical schools use a centralized online application service, called AMCAS. It takes more time to complete this application than you might imagine, so start early. We also help students with applications to other health professional schools: nursing, physician’s assistant, dentistry, ophthalmology, osteopathy, veterinary programs, and more.
