american schools and pre-med?
I was wondering, in U.S. if “Pre-Med” is a direct-entry (after highschool) program and if so if it is a major that you can take that would hopefully lead into being accepted into MD.
What schools in the U.S have this “pre-med” program?
thank yiou !
Med schools don’t like the 2 year Ba then Med school so generally every one gets there undergrad then applies to med school, that way they also have time to develop the science and Math skills needed… Good Luck
Furthermore some universities have programs for dedicated high school students to be accepted into medical before they even step into the university.
Some schools that have a wonderful medical school admission rate include:
1. Washington University in St. Louis
2. Emory University (Atlanta, Georgia)
3. Northwestern University (Chicago)
4. University of Pennsylvannia
5. Cornell University (NY)
Not all of these schools have a specific ‘pre-med’ program, but all of them are known to get people into medical school.
Pre-Med is not a degree program, it is a course sequence designed to satisfy entrance requirements to US Medical Schools. You will not get a degree in Premedical Studies. You would get a degree in some sort of science…General Science being the one I have seen most. Almost all Universities in the US offer a PreMed program of study.
You will need to work with an advisor to choose a few different med schools, and satisfy the entrance requirements for all of them, so that you have more options available when it comes time to apply.
So you’re back to biochem, chemistry, biology. Sorry!
i know Duke and UNC have one
