Chemistry is essential to understanding the many complicated processes that occur in the human body, as well as creating medications. It’s also the foundation for selecting appropriate nutrients, vitamins and minerals required for good health.
PREPARATION FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONS
The Health Professions Committee advises students pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy or other health professions at the beginning of their freshman year. An information center and bulletin board are always available for students interested in a health care career.
At the Brooklyn Campus, an articulation agreement with SUNY Downstate Medical Center allows for minority students to participate in six-week summer programs, which educates students on a variety of medical-related professions and prepares participants for acceptance into the medical school.
CANDIDACY FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONS
When students are invited for an interview with a health profession institution, the Health Professions Committee conducts a mock interview to discuss the protocol and probable questions.

Some of the professional schools attended by our chemistry graduates include:
