A liberal arts education provides the general background that professional schools expect. Students interested in the health professions may major in any field but most choose to concentrate their study in biology or chemistry.
A broad understanding of modern science and a variety of courses in the social sciences and humanities are important to students seeking admission to professional schools. Selection is very competitive; successful applicants maintain a high level of academic performance in all work, score well on the appropriate aptitude tests (MCAT, DAT, etc.). A student preparing for professional school in a health profession is responsible for determining the specific requirements for the particular school under consideration.
