Pre-Med Pre-reqs

Well, hi. I’m Sebastian and I’m looking to be in PC, Would you mind telling me the general pre-requirements for med-school and some other info I may need? - smansion

The bare minimum academic requirements:

  • Gen Chem 1&2
  • Intro Physics 1&2 (calc or trig based–requirements vary by school)
  • General Bio 1&2
  • Organic Chemistry 1&2
  • Math: many schools require at least pre-cal to take Chemistry or physics. Some med schools require at least Calc 1, some don’t.

Psychology and Sociology may be required eventually (to prepare for new MCAT requirements).
