To apply to many healthcare positions or graduate programs in medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and more, an academic base in the sciences is required. If you already have a bachelor’s degree but little to no science background, our Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical/Health Professions Certificate program can help prepare you to pursue healthcare opportunities or advanced education. In this certificate program, you can work to develop the skills and knowledge to:
Understand scientific theories, concepts, and principles
Solve scientific problems with critical thinking and analysis
Use scientific tools, techniques, and equipment
Synthesize and analyze lab data
Communicate scientific information
The program features theoretical and practical coursework in anatomy, physiology, biology, general and organic chemistry, biochemistry, genetics, immunology, pathophysiology, and physics.

The professors made me feel I was always in a safe environment. I can already feel doors opening for me as I continue in the nursing program. The impact we will have to the community is something I look forward to. Nursing school has changed my life completely.
- Jose Calderon Lopéz, Bachelor of Science in Nursing
I'm learning real world skills that I can apply immediately upon graduating. I will feel more prepared to hit the ground running as a new nurse grad. My other career is in the Air National Guard, and it is important to me to be prepared to place my service first. South College has been very supportive along the way.
