Pre-Professional Health Care: Transfer

Dentistry, Medical Technology, Medicine, Optometry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Veterinary Medicine

Each course of study is designed to allow students to complete the first two years of a four-year pre-professional program at UCC. The students will then complete the remaining preprofessional prerequisites at a four-year college or university.

The majority of students apply to the professional schools after earning a Bachelor’s degree. The course work completed at UCC is applied towards a Bachelor’s degree in a related field. The first two years of course work includes prerequisites in mathematics, the sciences (such as chemistry and physics), the humanities and social sciences.

Admission to most professional schools is highly competitive, and there are only a few such programs available within the state of Oregon. Students completing one of these professional programs can expect to earn an excellent salary. Employment in these fields is expected to grow at faster rates than the average of other occupations.

Students planning to transfer should work closely with UCC faculty and advisers, and with representatives from the receiving college or university. There may be special requirements for specific programs or schools.
