Unlike some of the other health professional schools, medical schools are very consistent (and less demanding) in their course requirements. To apply to nearly all medical schools you need to take
At Geneseo this translates to:
Those above are the only curricular requirements. Premed students do NOT need to major in biology and do NOT need to take Human Anatomy, or Cell Biology or Animal Physiology. Premed students do NOT need to major in the sciences. There is no ‘premed major’; none of the over thirty majors available for Geneseo students is designed for premed students. Should you choose to major Biology, Biochemistry or Chemistry, most of the requirements listed above are required as part of that major but this doesn’t mean that this is the best major for you; you may not want to take all of the additional requirements of these majors. You will be getting lots of biology and chemistry in medical school so you might want to pursue something else as an undergraduate major. To get into medical school you need to excel as a student so you should choose a major that you think you can excel in.
