Health Professions Advising

Health Professions Advising

Advances in technology and in our understanding of how the body works make this an exciting time to consider a career in health care. Whether you dream of being a medical doctor, dentist, veterinarian, nurse, physician assistant, or one of many other rewarding occupations in the field of medicine, Merrimack College provides an excellent environment where you will be able to build a solid foundation for success both inside and outside the classroom.  Our science curriculum provides a rigorous education that you will need for admission to medical and osteopathic school, dental school, veterinary school, and other graduate programs.   In addition, Merrimack College offers a solid foundation in the liberal arts along with a wealth of opportunities to distinguish yourself outside the classroom.

Acceptance into professional medical schools takes planning, preparation and a high level of academic performance.  Students contemplating a professional career as a Medical Doctor (M.D.), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.), Dentist (D.M.D.) or Veterinarian (D.V.M.) should meet with Merrimack College’s Health Professions Advisor, Dr. Charlotte Berkes, early in their career.  Dr. Berkes will help students to plan for a successful undergraduate experience, and will assist in the application process when the time comes to apply.
