Majors  >  Pre-Medicine

USAO has a designated pre-medical advisor who receives information concerning the entrance requirements of medical colleges. The pre-med advisor will help those students whose interests lie in this area to plan their program for each trimester they are in college, regardless of what major they may  choose.  The pre-medical student should secure the approval of the pre-medical advisor each time the student enrolls. Although the various medical colleges do not have uniform entrance requirements, there is a great deal of similarity among them. Pre-medical students can start their program before selecting a medical college. Although the student may choose any program of study to major, most pre-med students choose either a biology or chemistry major. These two majors provide the best preparation for the MCAT (Medical College Aptitude Test).
