Program Information/Mission:

Suggested courses are those that are required to be completed before a student sits for the MCAT and DAT (medical and dental school entrance exams).  A regular program of study in one of the established academic fields is generally recommended as the best preparation. Although a major in any academic field is usually acceptable, majors in biology and chemistry are especially suitable since major requirements in these fields overlap with pre-professional requirements.
