Medical and dental schools require for admission, one-year lecture and laboratory courses in general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, and general biology. Additional course work in mathematics including calculus, biochemistry, and upper division biology may be recommended or required. Students may meet the pre-medical professional requirements by one of three plans: All pre-medical students should obtain a broad liberal arts education by taking course work in the humanities, fine arts and social and behavioral sciences. Because entrance requirements vary, it is important that students meet with a pre-medical advisor and find out the specific requirements for each school to which they plan to apply.


Regardless of their major, pre-medical professional students should seek advise on pre-medical curriculum to plan a program which will meet the entrance requirements for their prospective field of study, For more information on such advising please contact the College of Natural and Behavioral Sciences Dean's Office.
