Health science pre-clinical track is an amazing major. It builds up one person's foundation to work on clinical researches in their future or maybe in graduate school. Graduate level clinical programs need pre-requisites which are covered in undergrad program of health science pre clinical track. Pre-Clinical track provides students with a solid educational background in health-related sciences, also provides the fundamental courses that are required for admission to graduate level clinical programs . Students can choose medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, physician assistant, and other health-related professions according to their preference.

Brooke, when you complete a degree in health sciences you can either go on to further education such as medical school, PA school, dental school, physical therapy school, etc. or you can seek a job right after graduation. After graduating with a degree in biology (pre-med) I worked in a research lab at a university's medical school. I was a technician in a research lab helping the physician do his lab experiments. After a couple years I went to medical school and had a career in medicine. If you want to be employed right after college graduation, I'd encourage you to look into jobs in universities and also large medical centers. University research labs often are hiring technicians with bachelors degrees or they may be looking for lab assistants who will be able to help in setting up and running teaching labs which the undergraduates take. Research medical centers hire folks with pre-health science degrees to help with research studies (recruiting patients, coordinating the studies, etc.)

You may find, as I did, that after a period of time you feel ready to get back into your education and then can look into applying for further training (doctor/dentist/PA/PT, etc.) which will require more than the bachelors degree.
