Preparing for the Health Professions 

While every healthcare profession is known for its unique purpose and approach to patient care, many healthcare professions look for similar qualities and experiences in qualified applicants.

Dimensions Program for Health Professions helps students become qualified, competitive applicants for graduate and professional programs in healthcare. Programs include medical school, physical therapy programs, physician assistant programs, dental school, schools of veterinary medicine, and more.

Cornell College students pursuing healthcare regularly meet with the Associate Director of Dimensions to discuss courses to take, internship and research opportunities, co-curricular activities, admission exam scores, schools of interest, and more throughout their time at Cornell College and even as Cornell alumni. 

The Dimensions Guide to Preparing for Professional Programs in Healthcare covers general information on preparing for graduate and professional programs in healthcare, including prerequisites and other resources helping you learn more about what it takes to enter the healthcare field.
