Health Science Pre-Majors
HPHY majors who are planning careers in medicine should include one year of organic chemistry with laboratory and additional coursework in biochemistry and genetics.Other health science programs may also have these or other prerequisite requirements.Please check with your academic advisor for more information.

HPHY Majors planning on careers in health sciences should include laboratories in chemistry and physics in their studies.

HPHY Majors who plan on careers in medicine, physical therapy, or other health science fields should also take one course in Probability and Statistics.

Transfer Students
Transfer students should work to complete as many of the general education requirements and prerequisites to the HPHY major as possible before attending the U of O.The department would strongly encourage that a transfer student complete the human anatomy and human physiology courses at the University of Oregon. Contact the HPHY Academic Advisor for more information.

Additional Requirements

  • For PCC courses that transfer to U of O, refer to Transfer Equivalencies above.
  • If you plan to earn an AAOT degree, all U of O general education requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
