Why:         Many post-baccalaureate individuals decide to change their careers and enter the expanding health industry. This post-baccalaureate program will prepare students who have completed a non-life-science degree in areas such as anthropology, English or psychology to gain the knowledge base required to become competitive applicants to health professional schools such as dental school, medical school or veterinary school.  However, this goal is not easily realized because the subjects of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology are heavily impacted at nearly every university. At CSUSM, the cohort design of the Pre-Health Professions program will help alleviate this problem, and will meet student needs for preparation to competitively qualify for admissions into health professions programs.
