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. This is your chance to explore your options.  The BC Career Center has extensive series of resources for investigating possible health-related careers. 

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. Another great source for exploring the many health professions is ExploreHealthCareers a resource for student health careers information and interactive tools for exploring health career paths, and finding schooling and funding opportunities.
