Clinical Careers

Each year, a number of HPM graduates opt to pursue careers as caregivers after graduating from PC. Some students opt to complete the College’s premed curriculum to prepare themselves for admission to medical school, dental school, or post-graduate nursing programs. An undergraduate degree in health policy and management from PC can provide an excellent background for individuals who seek positions as nurse managers, physician executives, or others interested in how government policies, health care reimbursement, and other issues will affect their clinical practice. Students interested in applying to graduate programs in nursing or medicine are encouraged to talk with Dr. Lynne Lawson, the Advisor for Health Professions to plan for appropriate coursework in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and statistics that may be required for admission.
