The first steps toward a career in medicine.
This pre-med focus is an advising program to help students become well prepared for application to medical school. With intensive advising from the university’s dedicated pre-health professions advisor, students receive assistance in selecting and sequencing appropriate courses, ensuring that they are on track with their career goals, and connecting with resources both on and off campus, including current medical students in their first year of the WWAMI program.
Medical school admission requirements vary between programs, but typical prerequisite courses will include general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics, calculus, statistics, psychology, and sociology. Common pre-medical majors include biology, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, exercise science, food 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.
