The Integrative Physiology and Health Science Department emphasizes a combination of a strong science education, with a variety of hands-on laboratory and clinical experiences.
Integrative Physiology and Health Science prepares students for various graduate work fields. We have pre-professional medical programs, that allow students to learn techniques and experience high-tech laboratory equipment on a whole body spectrum as well as on a molecular level. Students also have the opportunity to interact and gain hands-on clinical experiences with members of the Alma community.
Another highlight of Alma College’s IPHS major is, we are one of very few Division III institutions with a gross anatomy laboratory, where students have the chance to dissect on full body cadavers.
The pre-professional tracks that Integrative Physiology and Health Science offer are:
- Pre-Physical Therapy
- Pre-Occupational Therapy
- Pre-Physician’s Assistant
- Public Health
- Clinical Exercise Physiology
Regional American College of Sports Medicine Conference
Academically qualified students with financial need who major in a STEM field are eligible for the awards. Recipients will be designated Alma College Science Scholars.
“We want to get more students excited about science through laboratory and field experiences that are tied to local issues and have personal meaning.” — Jeff Abernathy
