Wheaton offers a variety of courses outside of the health careers pre-requisites that can enhance a student’s understanding of health and medicine.  Also, through Wheaton’s innovated Connections curriculum, there are many Connections that pre-health careers students may consider taking to get a sense of the multi-dimensional ways that one can view the nature of the body, health, nutrition, drugs, and medicine.
