Other Health Professions

While medicine and dentistry are the health professions students may be most familiar with, there are as many as 200 health careers that students can consider that will lead them to fulfilling careers in patient health.

The Health Professions Advising Office focuses on advising students for some of the most well-known and sometimes complex options, in terms of admissions and experiential requirements. Students may explore a vast range of Allied Health or Health-related professions at explorehealthcareers.org and AMA's Health Care Careers Directory. Approximately 60% of the health professions workforce, or about 5 million people, work in one of about 80 different Allied Health professions. There is certain to be one that is just right for you.

The American Medical Association also has a helpful resource for students who want to learn more about the different health professions: Health Care Careers Directory
