Neuroscience Alumni

After Bowdoin

The majority of Neuroscience majors go on to either graduate or medical school. In addition, a number of majors have gone on to careers in the allied health professions, including veterinary medicine, public health, and nursing. Some recent choices of graduate and medical schools include Harvard, Yale, Brandeis, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Penn, and the University of Calgary. Many majors spend one to three years after graduating conducting research at institutions such as the National Institutes of Health or a variety of major universities and medical institutions before going on to graduate or professional school.
