Applied Medicine Concentration

The need for qualified health care professionals versed in interprofessional practice is growing with an increased need between 25-44% through 2020.  The Applied Medicine Concentration is designed to ensure that students obtain the required pre-requisites for a professional program in Athletic Training, Chiropractic Medicine, Occupational Therapy, Physician Assistant and Physical Therapy.  In fact, students who complete the AMR Concentration in the top 5% of their class and meet program requirements can obtain direct entry into the ISU professional program (OT, PA and PT).  Post-graduation, students may also obtain employment in medical sales as a physician extender and medical office administrator.

The coursework in the department emphasizes strong theoretical foundations within each of the areas of applied medicine, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students also benefit from hands-on clinical education and/or classroom experiences with health care professionals.
