Medicine and Allied Fields

Schools of dentistry, medicine and allied fields recognize the importance of a broad education — a strong foundation in the natural sciences (biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics), highly developed communication skills and a solid background in the social sciences and humanities. Most applicants for professional schools have majored in one of the sciences; however, a student may select a major from any discipline that represents a field of personal interest in which high academic achievement can be realized while at the same time completing required science courses. Such qualities as leadership, dedication and diversity of interests should be developed during a pre-professional program.
