Department of Biology and Earth Science
Area 06 Pre-Med, Pre-Dental, Pre-Vet
Although a degree with an emphasis in pre-medicine does not guarantee that you will be accepted into medical school, it is a curriculum designed to best prepare you for the MCAT (the Medical College Admission Test) and for the stressful environment of medical school. With a strong emphasis in biology and chemistry, it also provides a solid background in physics and mathematics.
Admission to professional schools for MD, DC, DVM or DO degrees remains highly competitive with many more students applying than can be admitted. Admission requirements and the long period of educational preparation that is required to become a physician or other health care provider demand that students not only meet the minimum requirements, but present themselves as competitive applicants. Admission becomes possible only when a student possesses high intellectual abilities and demonstrates a consistent record of academic excellence.
