My Medical Career.

With a Mayo Clinic Health System facility adjacent to Bethany’s Mankato campus, the Nursing and Exercise Science programs take on a special vibrancy.

“When one studies the intricacies of the body, you can only conclude that we have a great designer and creator, and Bethany professors seek to help you understand this in classroom discussions.”

The biology, biochemistry, psychology and chemistry majors remain the most significant pathway to a full medical degree or work in pharma, counseling, chiropractic, or veterinary fields.

The health communication major provides students immediate access to the health field through management, systems, and leadership development.

Bethany professors provide personal guidance for sorting through majors and graduate school options. Biology students often continue to a variety of medical schools. Exercise science majors prepare for schools of occupational therapy or physical therapy. Nursing students are often hired before graduation. Chemistry students learn the foundations of the pharmaceutical industry. And Health communication majors typically enter administrative roles.  

“When I started in the Mayo PT program, I remember distinctly thinking: this is what Bethany prepared me for—being a witness of my faith in a new setting, and pursuing a career that uses my God-given talents.”
