I REALLY would like to become one... I know I can major in anything right before med school. And that's my problem I'm not sure what. So what are some of u majoring in for a 4 year degree?

    I knew a guy at an Ivy for an undergrad degree in the history of photography. Got into med school. Interesting.

    It's much too soon to decide on a medical specialty until you've been exposed to the various specialties in med school.

    Nonetheless, some majors that could provide a good background for a potential radiologist include Anatomy & Physiology; Biomedical Engineering; Physics (with a Health/Medical Physics track); Neuroscience (if interested in neuroradiology); possibly Computer Science; possibly Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences (if any interest in a specialty in nuclear medicine)
