Healthcare Pathways

Explore the pathways we offer to careers in healthcare.

Entering healthcare 

Healthcare is a rapidly growing and changing profession. More than 11% of all U.S. workers are employed in the healthcare industry, and that figure is expected to grow by more than 15% in the 2020s. The healthcare industry is in constant need of workers who are creative thinkers and problem-solvers — people who can lead and take on new challenges.

Our majors, minors and pre-professional programs help prepare you for success in the healthcare industry — as a doctor, physical therapist, pharmacist, occupational therapist, chiropractor, nurse, athletic trainer and other jobs. Working closely with our professors in the College’s dynamic living-learning environment, you will discover the best career path for you.
