Students interested in health care or who plan to apply to a professional graduate program in one of the health areas may choose to major in either Biomedical Sciences or Health Care Management in the School of Health Professions. Both of the majors offer pre-professional tracks and other areas of concentration. Health Professions' academic advisors will help you plan your schedules to help you reach your goals. Some of the professional programs in UAB Health Professions offer early admission opportunities.
