Medical and Dental Careers (HSAEC)
Please select your field of interest:
- Premedical (both allopathic and osteopathic) or M.D./Ph.D. programs
- Optometry or Podiatry
- Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy
- Nurse Practitioner
- Other medically-related programs, such as Veterinary Medicine, Physician Assistant, Chiropractic, or Public Health.
Optometry or Podiatry
Most of the suggestions made for medical school applicants are applicable here as well.
The procedures for review by the HSAEC should be followed for these disciplines as well. Each has their own application requirements, but requires a Committee recommendation. Scores from a standardized test (usually the GRE or the MCAT) are required. Further information about these application procedures can be obtained at the following web sites:
- American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine
- Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry
Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy
Information about Physical Therapy should be obtained from the University of Delaware Department of Physical Therapy and information about Occupational Therapy from the American Occupational Therapy Association.
Information about Nurse Practitioners should be obtained from the University of Delaware School of Nursing.
Other medically-related programs
The HSAEC does not evaluate students applying to chiropractic programs, physician-assistant programs or to programs in Public Health. However, we will try to assist you if you have an interest in one of these career tracks.
Advisement of veterinary school applicants takes place in the University of Delaware College of Agriculture & Natural Resources.
