A Medical Biology degree prepares you for a career in human medicine, dentistry, biomedical research, biotechnology, or one of the other health professions like physical therapy. It provides a foundation in biology at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and organismal levels. It also provides an introduction to physiology, biochemistry, cellular biology, and genetics.
The work you do occurs on a campus that bustles with the activity of undergraduates, graduate students and professional students aspiring to work in the sciences and in human and animal medicine.
You may choose the Medical Sciences track or Pre-Physician's Assistant track:
The Medical Sciences Track
This is the track for you if you’re a Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Veterinary, Pre-Public Health, or Pre-Physical Therapy student, or if you plan to pursue a graduate degree in the biological sciences. The track includes the prerequisite courses required by medical and dental schools and for graduate programs in Physical Therapy (see admission requirements for UNE's DPT program), Occupational Therapy and other health professions programs.
