Pre-Med Education Course of Study

It’s all about options and increasing your opportunities to be successful.  Getting a science or engineering undergraduate degree can be taken to the next level with a Pre-Med Course of Study.  This is ideal for students who are considering medical school, a job in the growing biotechnological industry, or continuing their education in graduate school.  A science or engineering degree and the Pre-Med Course of Study can prepare you to be a great doctor, medical researcher, or designer of tomorrow’s lifesaving technologies.

Two of Kettering’s programs already include the specific courses required for entrance into most medical schools: Biochemistry and Chemistry.  Students in any of the other degree programs can obtain the required courses by completing the Biochemistry minor, a year of Physics, and a year of Biology to obtain the most common Medical School prerequisites which are as follows:

Other requirements for most medical schools, such as one year of college math and courses in liberal studies, are already included within all the degree programs.  Students can typically utilize free or technical electives to take a portion of the credits in the Pre-Med Course of Study.  For a sample curriculum for your degree program that incorporates the pre-med course of study, see your degree program department chair or Dr. Stacy K. Seeley (pre-med coordinator). While most medical schools do not usually require other courses as prerequisite courses, we also recommend taking other specific courses to help prepare students for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).  These include Biochemistry II, Anatomy & Physiology, and a Psychology course.
