- Strongly recommend physiology, molecular biology, genetics, and dynamics of biological processes. Also recommend comparative anatomy, evolution, environmental science, calculus, foreign language (especially Spanish), philosophy, political science, sociology, economics, psychology, accounting and business courses, history, communication courses, and ethics.
- This course list does NOT represent a POE, nor does it cover College requirements. Design a POE, preferably in an academic area, in consultation with your advisor.
- Make sure to have an advisor on the Health Professions Committee.
- In addition to your course work you are urged to gain some experience in podiatric medicine either during the school year or over the summer.

Bolded courses are offered only in the indicated semester and/or require a specific sequence due to Juniata prerequisites. Non-bolded courses are either offered in both semesters or represent open-ended choices, making them more flexible in when they can be taken.

*Both semesters of the year you plan to take the exam.
If you study abroad the SAFEST strategy is to take ALL prerequisite courses for professional school in the U.S., which may require you to take courses in the U.S. over the summer, preferably at a 4 year institution. However, if this is extremely difficult for your situation, check with the professional schools you wish to attend to see if they will accept courses taken abroad and if so, get their response in writing.
Be mindful of your POE courses, which are NOT indicated here.
