Typical Medical Professionals Course Sequencing

Below is a typical Medical Professionals class sequence to fulfill an Associate of Science Degree at PPSC. This class sequence is in preparation for transferring to a four-year university Medical Professionals track. Courses can be taken in summer semesters to reduce the course load for each semester. Be sure to work with your Medical Sciences Advisor to revise this plan if you place into or have taken college-level Pre-Calculus or Calculus.

Note: Anatomy and Physiology courses should be taken at Junior or Senior levels at a traditional four-year institutions to properly prepare for Medical School. Taking BIO 106, BIO 201 and BIO 202 at PPSC would not be sufficient.

It is best to take all sciences courses with in-person labs.

PPSC does not offer Bio-Chem courses. Those also would need to be taken after you transfer to a traditional four-year university or college. 

Students should research Medical Professionals at the four-year institutions of their choice well before transferring. Work with your Academic and/or Faculty Advisors to make sure they are taking the correct courses.

Pre-Physical Therapist and Pre-Physician Assistant coursework is different than what is charted below. Be sure to read the advising websites for these two career objectives.
