Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental

Associate in Science (Transfer)

A career in pre-professional health careers is ideal for those who have strong math and science backgrounds. ICC is the perfect college to begin your academics. While you prepare for transfer, you will complete most of the pre-requisite coursework. Suggested courses must be completed before you sit for the MCAT and DAT (medical and dental school entrance exams).

Your undergraduate studies are critical in preparation for the rigors of medical school. Although a major in any academic field is usually acceptable, majors in biology and chemistry are especially suitable since major requirements in these fields overlap with pre-professional requirements.

Our state-of-the-art health teaching facilities mean you’ll have the best preparation for your advanced education.
