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.
Candidates for the Bachelor of Science in Physics - Premedical Physics must complete the course requirements listed in the following curriculum. Because the subject matter of general physics forms a critically important foundation for all advanced physics courses, the minimum grade for satisfying the prerequisite requirements for a physics major is a grade of C for each of the following courses: PHY 1001, PHY 2002, PHY 2003, PHY 2091 and PHY 2092.
*Students will be block registered into Biological Discovery 1 (BIO 1010). Students who place into Calculus 2 (MTH 1002) are encouraged to take Physics 1 (PHY 1001) in the first semester and BIO 1010 later in the program.
