The first steps toward a career in medicine.
This program provides the educational foundation and hands-on learning experiences required for application to medical school.
With intensive advising from the university’s dedicated pre-health academic advisor, you will study general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, biology, physics, math, English, psychology, sociology and other areas that will prepare you for application to medical school. You will gain firsthand exposure to the profession, with opportunities to shadow physicians and to work with patients in a clinical setting. Pre-med students can also choose to be mentored by medical students in the WWAMI program.
Common pre-medical majors include biology, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, exercise science, psychology and nutrition. A career as a physician requires an undergraduate degree, four years of medical school, and a three- to seven-year residency.
