This course provides students interested in health professions with an overview of occupational therapy, physical therapy, audiology, and pharmacy. Students gain a better understanding of the scope of practice, markets, and skills required to succeed in these professions. Students learn about graduate and professional education options and how to build a competitive application for these programs. Finally, students participate in self-directed learning experiences (which may include in-person or virtual shadowing, attending professional presentations, meeting with health care professionals or graduate students, or sitting in on graduate-level classes) and culminate their study with an inter-professional education session with a panel of faculty from the different health professions. Students finish the course with a better understanding of whether a career in health professions is right for them.
