Are You Considering a Career in Health Sciences?

Choosing your career is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. When asked why they chose to pursue medicine, most physicians respond that they wanted to make a difference by helping people and positively impacting their lives through health care.

Serving others through health care is a noble and challenging way to invest your intellect, skills, and passion in a demanding and rewarding profession.  

Expect to Be Challenged

School admissions committees are looking for students who will be able to keep up with the coursework. Most medical students agree that the amount of material required during the first two years of pre-clinical study is exponentially higher than the workload during undergraduate school. During the third and fourth (clinical) years, there are also physical and psychological demands made by very long hours, hard work, and interaction with patients. It takes a highly motivated individual to pursue a career in health care.
