Students who are interested in pursuing these or related careers should consult Sheila Barry, assistant professor of Biology and the Pre-Allied Health Professions advisor. She can assist candidates in selection of appropriate pre-requisite courses and Web resources that are beneficial to applicants, participation in clinical experiences, choice of schools, timing of application submission, feedback on application essays, GREs and interviewing skills.

She also can provide information on the academic partnership agreements that Stonehill College has with certain graduate schools. Students are not obligated to attend affiliated colleges and universities and are welcome to apply to the programs of their choice.
