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.
IPHS 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
