Students interested in allopathic or osteopathic medical school can major in any subject, although the majority of students at UNA 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. It is best to shadow primary care doctors as they are the ones who are interacting constantly with patients.
  • 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. Do not spend the money on Interfolio!
