Recommendation:
Students who are pursuing a BS with a concentration in pre-health professions and are planning to continue into graduate pre-professional health programs (e.g., medicine, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant) should consult with their intended graduate program in deciding which science courses to choose. Students may also want to consult their major advisor and the Brooklyn College pre-health advisement office.
