The clinical track is selected in the late sophomore or early junior year through an application to Rutgers-SHP.

Applicants must maintain a minimum GPA of 2.85 and have met or be scheduled to complete all prerequisite requirements prior to the planned date for enrolling in the 4th year specialization coursework.

Students admitted to the 4th year professional phase are selected by an Admissions Committee from among those applicants meeting these minimum standards.

Requirement for admission to the professional portion of the program include the following:

General Prerequisite Course Work:
1 semester of General Chemistry for science majors with laboratory (3 cr.)
2 semesters of Human Anatomy and Physiology with laboratory (6 cr.)
1 semester of General Biology for science majors or similar (3 cr.)
1 semester of College Algebra or Pre-Calculus (3 cr.)
2 semesters of English or Communications (6 cr.)
1 semester General Physics for science majors (3 cr.)
1 semester of Medical Terminology (does not have to have college credits)
General Prerequisite or Program Co‐Requisite Course Work:
1 semester Humanities course (3 cr.)
1 semester Social Science course (3 cr.)

Additional requirements may be required by the affiliate college during the first 3 years of the program.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 15th for September.
Students that are in the process of completing courses during the spring semester should submit a letter from their instructor stating their midterm grade for the course. The letter must be on school letterhead and in a sealed school envelope.
