A student in the medical pre-professional programs must have a thorough understanding of the basic sciences but also must possess a broad cultural knowledge of the people with whom he/she will work. It is highly recommended that the student entering these programs formulate plans to complete the bachelor’s degree since most professional schools in Texas require a bachelor’s degree. The student should consult with the pre-medical advisor during the freshman year to plan a major and minor. The student should consider alternate career goals in this planning in case admission to medical school is not achieved. The student should plan to take the MCAT or DAT during the spring semester preceding the fall semester that application is made to medical school.
The following curriculum is provided for the student’s guidance:
|US PE Activity||2|
|MATH 1314 or 142||3|
|COMS 1315 or 1321||3|
|US Soc/Behav Sci||3|
|First Major (Adv)***||12-16|
|US Vis/Perf Arts (Adv)***||3|
|First Major (Adv)||12-16|
|Second Major (Adv)||12-16|
|Total Hours: 128-144|
Pre-medical students will elect Math 141 and/or MATH 142 Pre-Calculus, and MATH 191 .
Non-biological sciences majors may choose a different biological sciences course upon consultation with advisor.
First and Second major course requirements will vary depending upon academic discipline selected.
