Health Professions

Biology is the most popular major nationwide for students preparing for graduate study in the Health Professions.

Our BS degrees in Biology, Zoology, and Botany provide a solid foundation for further study in medicine, dentistry, osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, veterinary medicine, and other health-related fields. For more information got to Program Overview – Health Professions – University of Maine.

The School of Biology & Ecology offers an optional Concentration in Pre-medical Studies that includes all of the requirements for admission to medical school and other health-related fields along with several courses that further strengthen preparation.

A Health Professions Committee advises students on meeting criteria for admissions to post-baccalaureate schools and colleges such as medical schools.

Students planning on a career in clinical laboratory sciences and medical technology may enroll in the Medical Laboratory Sciences curriculum.
