Meet Kenley Preval '15 - Biology

When Kenley Preval, '15, transferred to Curry from a large university, he was looking for a more hands-on Biology program. He wanted to be able to work one-on-one with professors while developing his research in the medical field.

Pre-Health Profession Studies

Students wishing to pursue a career as a physician, dentist, veterinarian, physician assistant, or other medical careers requiring an advanced degree should consider Curry's Pre-Health Profession Studies Program (This encompasses what are popularly called pre-med programs, pre-dental programs, etc).
