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 biomolecules 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: 

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 

The 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
