Pre-Medical / Pre-Dental
Students interested in going to medical or dental school usually major in either Biology or Chemistry. However, students pursuing other majors generally can complete most medical/dental school prerequisites in addition to their major course work. Most medical/dental schools require one year of Biology, but two years are recommended strongly. The following courses are recommended: BIO 110, 322, 323, and 330, with BIO 220, 331, and 441 suggested); one year of Inorganic Chemistry (recommended: CHM 131 and 311), one year of Organic Chemistry (recommended: CHM 221 and 222, with CHM 345 strongly suggested); one year of Physics (recommended: PHY 217 and 218); one year of Mathematics (recommended: MAT 115 & 135; and one year of English (satisfied by GSTR 110 and 210). Students considering medical or dental school are strongly encouraged to consult with Dr. Dawn Anderson, the pre-medical/pre-dental advisor on campus, as early as possible for further information and for assistance with pre-medical/dental curriculum planning.
