The Biomedical Option is designed for students wishing to study medicine, dentistry, physical therapy and related fields of specialization. Thus, graduates typically apply to a medical school of some type or a graduate program such as physical therapy. However, while the specified curriculum is well-suited to these studies, professional schools do not specify that entering students have particular majors or options. Graduates who complete the degree option but do not enter a medical or graduate school program, should be well prepared for a variety of employment opportunities in biomedical or biotechnology-related laboratories.
