Health Profession Programs
Caldwell University offers several different programs for students interested in a career in health care. In our four-year professional programs in nursing, in healthcare administration, and in public health education, students are directly prepared for specific professions. In our pre-professional programs, students are prepared to enter a graduate-level professional school (i.e. schools of medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, optometry, etc.).
Pre-professional undergraduate students typically major in biology, chemistry, or health sciences; these majors are administered by the Department of Natural and Physical Sciences.
These undergraduate majors were designed to be completed in four years. Most pre-professional students complete their undergraduate degree before applying to a professional school.
- One option for undergraduates are combined programs in medicine, veterinary medicine, optometery, physical therapy and more with schools like Columbia University, Rutgers University, St. George’s Medical College and more. See a complete list of Health Professions Affiliation Programs.
- For students who have completed their undergraduate degree – Pre-Med Post Bac Program.
