With 34 credits of electives, the core chemistry major is a great choice for students who want to design a custom program to prepare for medical school.
Chemistry majors take all chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses required for admission to medical school, but biology courses must be added in some degree programs. Although strictly speaking only two semesters of biology are required by many medical schools, at least three 100-level courses should be taken for the best chance of success and the greatest range of opportunities.
REQUIRED ELECTIVES FOR PRE-MED CHEMISTRY MAJORS
The courses above, as well as the 200-level courses in chemistry and physics, should all be completed before taking the MCAT exams.
There are also other chemistry and biology courses which will enhance your preparedness for the mandatory entrance examinations. These are listed below:
ADDITIONAL RECOMMENDED COURSES
Please note that the biochemistry concentration degree includes many of the courses listed above.
