The Details About EMU’s Pre-med Program
Any undergraduate major is acceptable for medical school, but the required science courses must be completed no matter a student’s major. (See list of medical schools EMU students are now attending.) It is, of course, easier to complete these requirements if one is a biology or biochemistry major.
Extracurricular activities during the undergraduate years are important and are noticed when seeking placement in medical school or other settings. Your activities during college indicate your broader interests and experiences. Active participation in the Pre-Professional Health Society at EMU is a minimal expectation.
