Core Curriculum

In addition to the coursework required for your major, you'll complete a dedicated PMHPP curriculum to give you a broad understanding of the culture and responsibilities associated with careers in medicine, as well as basic clinical skills, certifications, evidence-based practice and much more.

Your pre-medical and pre-health course of study is individualized, depending on your career path. The number and type of required courses may vary, but below is a sampling of what you can expect:

Biology/lab*                        Advanced Mathematics/Statistics*
Chemistry/lab*                        English
Organic Chemistry/lab*                        Behavioral Sciences
Physics/lab*                        Anatomy/Physiology/lab
Biochemistry                        Medical Terminology

* Use of AP credit is discouraged in these content areas as some medical and health professional schools don't accept AP credits for college math and science coursework.

 It is vital that students begin researching the schools of their choice early so they are aware of all curriculum requirements for those particular schools.
