The pre-medical science major provides you with an understanding of select areas of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics, most specifically related to career preparation in some medical fields, including Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Osteopathy.
The major is designed to guide you through the optimal coursework required for the majority of medical schools. However, it is not necessary to choose the major to be eligible for medical school. In fact, most medical school students are initially graduates with majors in biology or chemistry. The pre-medical science major also meets the undergraduate course requirements of most dental, veterinarian and other health profession schools.
Please note that the pre-medical science major is not the same as the medical studies major.
