The premedical major offers the courses needed to meet the entrance requirements of essentially all schools of medicine, dentistry, osteopathic medicine, podiatry and optometry. The premedical advisor organizes a premedical evaluation committee to provide evaluation letters for students applying to medical school. Premedical physics majors have very high acceptance rates into medical and professional schools. Note this program is also an excellent choice for the student interested in a prelaw curriculum.
