  • Application sites: Many health professions use central application systems in the application process. The sites listed below provide a wealth of information on the application process, schools, and the profession. Students should begin exploring these sites in advance of their planned application (typically in the summer/fall prior to the 4th year) for matriculation upon graduation from UD (Physical Therapy: PTCASPhysician Assistant: CASPAOccupational Therapy: OTCASMedical School (MD): AMCASMedical School (DO): AACOMAS)
  • Standardized tests: Many graduate programs and health professional schools require the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Medical Schools require the MCAT. Other specific entrance exams may be required by other professional schools. Students should discuss the appropriate timing of taking these tests, but often they are completed the summer/early fall between the 3rd and 4th years.
  • Career information: The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook provides valuable information when deciding career paths and looking at employment opportunities/requirements.
