Pre-MedicineStudents interested in allopathic or osteopathic medical school can major in just about anything, although the majority of students choose either biology or chemistry.
As a person interested in health care you must consider these points:
- You must be well-rounded in your liberal arts education.
- You must demonstrate a desire to help people, either through paid or volunteer work.
- Job shadowing is extremely important to determine if you really know what a physician does in the course of a day. This activity needs to be initiated by the end of your sophomore year at UNA. Talk to your advisor about how to arrange this activity.
- You must demonstrate the intellectual ability to handle difficult courses.
Note: UNA uses VirtualEvals for uploading letters of evaluation for allopathic and osteopathic medical school.
