Pre-Health Professions Certificate
CSUSM is offering an intensive Pre-Health Professions post-baccalaureate certificate that will provide a student with the Science and Math courses they need to prepare for entrance into various Health Professions programs.
Many post-baccalaureate individuals decide to change their careers and enter the expanding health industry. This certificate program will prepare students who have completed a non-life science degree in areas such as Anthropology or English 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 Certificate program will help alleviate this problem, and will meet student needs for preparation to competitively qualify for admissions into Health Professions programs.
