Pre-Health: Courses | Department
Students interested in preparing for medical school or another health profession may select any major offered at Grinnell College while completing the required pre-health courses. Grinnell College does not offer a specific pre-health or pre-med major.
Faculty assist in providing guidance to students interested in medical school (or one of the other health professions) through the Health Professions Advisory Committee (HPAC).
There is no major in physical education (P.E.) at Grinnell, but the department offers many ways for students to be involved: in activity classes, content (theory) courses, and on varsity athletic teams.
Departmental Advising & Registration Suggestions
Faculty members from each academic department have provided these suggestions as starting points. Suggestions include what courses to take and in which order, with an eye towards leaving open the possibility of majoring in that discipline.
