Careers in Health: Explore the Options

Whether you aim to be a physician - or are drawn to a clinical career other than physician - our advice is:

  • Join the Pre-Health listserv
  • Explore the spectrum of health-related careers during college: You may find that medical school isn’t the path best suited to your evolving skills, interests and life goals
  • Expand your definition of physician to include osteopathic and podiatric physician.
  • Consider that the term doctor also describes a variety of other highly trained clinicians practicing in many different health professions. Don’t be quick to close doors to options that might be an excellent fit for you.
