Each August between 10 and 20 Geneseo alumni start medical school. Most graduated only three months earlier but some graduated one to several years earlier. Most are attending New York medical colleges, especially those in Buffalo and Syracuse, but some are in medical schools across the United States, both allopathic and osteopathic. This website is intended to help Geneseo students get into medical school by outlining the procedures and requirements involved.
If you are at Geneseo and interested in pursuing medical school regardless of your major, please be sure to do the following four items:
The menu on the side shows where more information is. Much of this is available in a more downloadable form at the following outboxes After logging on with your name and password, choose 'Biology', then 'briggs', then 'premed.'
If you are a student considering coming to SUNY Geneseo, be sure to look at the information under 'Prospective Students' on your left and on the Biology web page 'Prospective Students.'
May I be assigned or change my Premed advisor? Well, sort of! You are more than welcome to visit (and get advice from) anyone on the committee at any time, but you are not actually assigned a Premed advisor. You are not actually changing your advisor, but you are getting advice from additional people. You also may want to seek advice from people outside the committee: other faculty, physicians that you know, students in medical school. There is much help available online.
Does the premed advisor replace the advisor that has been assigned by the Dean's office? NO! Premed students have two advisors, one in their major (your academic advisor on KnightWeb) and also a Premed advisor (not assigned). It occasionally happens that students have the same advisor in both roles (if you happen to major in biology, chemistry, psychology or sociology and you happen to get a member of the Premedical Advisory Committee as your academic advisor), but generally this is not the case.
