Health Programs

Are you considering a career in health care, particularly one that involves advanced education past your bachelors degree? First advice: contact the CCSU Pre-health Committee. They will help you investigate your options and navigate the application process. Whether you are interested in becoming a Physician, Nurse, Physician’s Assistant, Dentist, Pharmacist,Therapist, Veterinarian, or other health career you should begin your preparation while completing your undergraduate degree.  The BMS degree program will provide you with the basic Biology, Chemistry, Math, and Physics for any health career.  Some may require specific electives within the BMS department (Anatomy and Physiology I and II and Biochemistry are required in many programs) and / or specific courses within your general education program.  
We also offer some courses that may help advance your career in the health sciences.  For students interested in applying to medical school the School of Engineering, Science, and Technology offers a course designed to prepare you to take the medical entrance exam:
MCAT review course
Other students require patient contact hours in order to be a successful applicant.  For example, many students applying to Physician's assistant programs work as Emergency Medical Technicians or Certified Nurses Assistants.  We offer an Emergency Medical Technician course here at Central:
EMT course
