Planning a career in healthcare? In our Pre-Health Professional pathway, earn an associate's degree while building the science foundation to continue your studies. A great education that costs less. Why not start here?
What You Learn as a Pre-Health Professional
Take general eds and wipe out the science and math courses you will need to transfer. Learn about anatomy and physiology, study organic compounds, and more. We'll guide you through the program.
What Can I Do as a Health Professional?
That depends on the field of health you choose to specialize. You can be a doctor, help deliver healthy babies into the world, or care for the elderly. You can be an occupational or physical therapist. Go into radiology or home health care. Follow your instincts and interests. There will always be a need for health care professionals. If you already identified your path, we may be able to get you there quicker and for less. Check out our two-year healthcare programs. Iowa's Last-Dollar Scholarship may even cover your tuition.
