Option Pre-Medicine/Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology - College of Science



Biochemistry and Molecular Biology students interested in a career in medicine should choose this option. It may also be suitable for students interested in some other health professions and these students should first consult with their advisor. In addition to offering a rigorous foundation in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, and genetics, the Pre-medicine option meets the requirements for most medical schools in the U.S. by providing students with training in psychology, ethics and social sciences. Students have a wide choice of medically relevant electives in areas such as physiology, microbiology, and immunology. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in undergraduate research. Faculty pre-med advisors guide students to integrate undergraduate research and other relevant professional opportunities into their undergraduate experience and to prepare themselves as strong candidates for admission to the professional schools of their interest.
