A pre-medicine major will prepare you for medical school. It combines chemistry, biology and physics courses and is a good plan to follow if you are quite sure about attending medical school. However, upon graduation you will be several courses short of either a biology or chemistry degree. If you then elect not to attend medical school, your employment options are uncertain.
Courses totaling 70 semester hours are required for the pre-medicine major and are pulled from the chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics majors.
Guildlines to complete the pre-medicine major in four years for students beginning fall 2019 and after.
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Pharmaceutical research
A university endowment funded by Dr. John Kraft, class of 1958, provides a $5,000 loan/grant to a graduating senior who enrolls in and completes one full year of medical school.
This financial support is awarded in the form of a loan that is cancelled upon completion of the first year of medical school. Recipients are chosen by a faculty award selection committee in consultation with the academic dean.
Interested students should contact the pre-med program advisor for more information or to apply for this award.
