If you decide to take some time between your undergraduate and professional coursework, we recommend considering some of the following opportunities. Please note that this is not a comprehensive list, but a place to get started.

Certified Nurse Aide (CNA)
Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

Various additional technician positions
Some of our students also choose non-clinical experiences:

Medically related Post-Baccalaureate (Post-Bacc) and short Master’s programs are intended for academic enhancement or career changes. Most programs are 1-2 years long. Some students changing careers also attend a four-year institution, such as CSU, just to complete the prerequisites they would need to be eligible to apply to health professions programs.
