Preparation for A Career in an Allied Health Field
The allied health sector of the American economy is booming. Careers in Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant, Occupational Therapy and others have never been more attractive. The training programs for these professions have also been changing. Most programs that train people for these careers are now requiring that applicants have completed bachelor’s degrees before they can enter the program.
Wilmington College has responded to these developments by creating the Bachelor of Science in Biology: Health Science Concentration. The Concentration is flexible and allows students to match their Wilmington College graduation requirements to the entrance requirements of their programs of interest. The rigorous education that you will receive in this concentration will not only prepare you for admission into an Allied Health program, it will give you the tools to excel in that program.
Students with an interest in Nursing should also explore Wilmington's cooperative program with Mount Carmel College of Nursing.
