It has been determined that the majority of the basic curriculum requirements for Pre-Med can be accommodated within the core undergraduate curriculum for bioengineering majors.
Please refer to The Career Center website for up-to-date information on basic required courses for Pre-Med. If interested in Pre-Med, you are encouraged to meet with a Career Center Pre-Health advisor as soon as possible. You also are advised to subscribe to the Health Careers Chronicle electronic newsletter, which contains useful information pertaining to preparation for Pre-Health careers.
Of the suggested or recommended list of basic courses to prepare for Pre-Med,
Bioengineering majors take:
- CHEM 102/103
- CHEM 104/105
- CHEM 232/233 (Organic Chemistry)
- CHEM 332/437 (Organic Chemistry II)
- MCB 150
- MCB 354 or MCB 450 (Biochemistry)
- PHYS 211/212
Pre-med students may want to consult with a Career Center Pre-Health advisor about courses that are required outside of the bioengineering curriculum. The requirement for CHEM 332 (second-semester organic) and CHEM 437 is determined by the admissions committee of individual medical schools, and not all medical schools have this requirement.
