Students who are interested in an applied health career should make an appointment at the Health Professions Advising Office (HPAO) as soon as possible. This includes anyone who is Pre-medicine, pre-dental, etc. While our Advising office advises on all things public health, the HPAO office will get those interested in a career in applied pre-professional health on their way to meeting all of the necessary requirements.
If you are interested, please go to their website and click on the “Prepare” link to find your area of interest.
Interdisciplinary Studies (IS2D)
For some students, it is beneficial to consider Interdisciplinary Studies (with an option to include Public Health as one of your three disciplines). Some reasons you might consider IS3D are: (1) timeline to graduation, (2) need to take additional classes for pre-clinical disciplines (e.g. pre-med, pre-nursing, pre-PT, pre-OT, pre-Dental, etc), (3) GPA limitations.
Find out if IS3D is right for you.
IS3D – Pre-Approved Plans – Public Health and other disciplines are available!
