Premedical Undergraduate Program

Admission to medical school is governed by several factors: the college record, results of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), recommendations, and an interview. Most important, however, is the grade point average. Students accepted to medical schools in recent years had a nationwide average GPA of 3.5 to 3.6. Early preparation and planning are important in order to do well on the MCAT and to fulfill health professional school requirements. Minimum requirements are introductory chemistry, organic chemistry, and one year each of physics, mathematics, biology, and English. Early in their academic careers, interested students should discuss their plans with the health professions adviser, John Ferguson.
