Medical Pre-Professional Concentration


The interdisciplinary curriculum of the Medical Pre-Professional Concentration emphasizes fundamental understanding of biology, chemistry, and physics.

ABOUT THE CONCENTRATION

This Medical Pre-Professional concentration in Biology is designed for students who wish to pursue advanced degrees at traditional medical schools, schools of osteopathic medicine,
chiropractic schools, schools of veterinary sciences or dental schools.

This rigorous curriculum is designed so that by the end of their junior year students will have been introduced to all the
major subject areas covered by standardized tests (e.g. MCAT, DAT) required for admissions into
these advanced degrees.

Students will choose electives their junior and senior years to meet their independent needs.
