Bradley’s chemistry-pre-med program gives you a firm grasp of physiological and biological principles to prepare you for medical, dental or optometry school.
The chemistry-pre-med program is one of several paths you can take to a career as a health professional. It equips you to explore career options through research and volunteer opportunities in Peoria hospitals, the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria or several student organizations. Additionally, you can conduct research with faculty and receive guidance from Bradley's Health Professions Advising Center. The chemistry department also offers a general degree in chemistry, a chemistry high school education degree, a concentration in chemistry-business and a concentration in chemistry-pre-pharmacy. You also can earn a graduate chemistry degree through Bradley. With these options, you have flexibility to tailor the program to your career goals.
Bradley’s chemistry-pre-med program successfully prepares you for direct entry into professional or graduate school. In recent years, almost all students continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re receiving medical training at institutions such as the University of Illinois, A.T. Still University, Medical College of Wisconsin and Midwestern University.
