Exploring Health-Related Careers


Although many of you will ultimately choose to apply to medical or dental school, there are a variety of health careers to consider. If you are an undergraduate, visit the Career Center, which has an extensive series of resources for investigating possible health-related careers. The Career Center staff can help you find these resources. Please also visit their web site to view The Career Resource Library. This will bring you to a number of relevant links.

You should also feel free to make an appointment with a Career Counselor at any time (617-552-3430).

Many Boston College graduates have pursued careers in chiropractic medicine, optometry, and podiatry. Physician assistant programs and physical therapy have become increasingly popular the last few years, and students with a strong background/interest in chemistry have pursued pharmacy degrees. For further information on these various careers you can also visit Health Careers General Information on our website.
