Pre-Medical Advising at Armstrong

You can be ANY major and obtain admission to medical school.  The pre-medical prerequisites are the same, regardless of major.  At Armstrong, the courses below will fit in your Core Area A (Math and English), Core Area D (sciences and statistics, depending on major), Core Area E (psychology and sociology) and your major program.  

Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Physics are very common majors for Pre-medical students. Armstrong's new degree in Biochemistry is also an excellent choice for Pre-medicine majors.

General Requirements (based on the content of the  MCAT 2015)

Prior to 2015, items with an asterisk (*) are only recommended, but may be required by some schools.  Beginning in 2015, information from these courses will appear on the MCAT exam
