Preparation for Success in the Health Professions
A number of our chemistry alumni have gone on to become
physicians, surgeons, physician assistants, and health care practitioners in
other areas. For those interested in
exploring the world of molecules and the instruments that probe them, the
chemistry major can be a route to a successful medical career.
Opportunities that Work for You
Several tracks within the chemistry major are designed for
those interested in the health professions:
- The biochemistry track provides some background
in molecular biology as well as chemistry, and helps prepare students for
future careers in medicine, biotechnology, pharmaceutical research, or other healthcare areas.
- The pre-pharmacy track (also available as an
accelerated track) prepares students for pharmacy school.
Our students have also taken advantage of summer research opportunities both on campus and off campus to foster intellectual growth which
helps prepare them for future responsibilities in the health care professions.
High-Quality, Christian Education
chemistry degree provides a high-quality, Christian education from Huntington
while creating a path to many healthcare opportunities through a high rate of
medical school acceptance for pre-med graduates. .
The chemistry program builds on Huntington’s excellence in biology and chemistry while working alongside the
university’s multiple exercise science programs, accredited nursing program, and occupational therapy doctoral program.
