Best Major Prior To MED SCHOOL!

I was just wondering like before med school for undergraduate ...
is it better to do biomedical engineering, bioengineering or pre-med???</p>

<p>what is the difference between biomedical engineering and bioengineering?</p>

<p>and if someone does pre-med , what happens if they dont pass their mCats????</p>

<p>also ... can we do any major ... sorry i dont know too much about the undergrad beofre med school ...

<p>All (or at least most) schools allow you to major in anything before attending med school, as long as you meet the core course requirements for medical school -- ie my cousin majored in history but will be attending med school.</p>

<p>And as for pre-med, so far as I've seen pre-med isn't a major but rather an "advising track."</p>

<p>if i want to do MED later on ... i should either do bio or bio med ... ? ... CAN I do chemE and still go on to Med school ... will i cover all the pre-reqs? ... i dont know thanks</p>

<p>As an undergraduate student, you can major in anything you want. You just have to complete the pre-med curriculum.</p>

<p>A year of Freshman Chemistry along with the appropriate laboratory courses
A year of Organic Chemistry along with laboratory courses
A year of Biology along with laboratory courses
A year of Physics along with laboratory courses
A year of English
A year of Calculus or other advanced math classes, including Statistics </p>

<p>You can do chemical engineering if that's what you are interested in. You'll want to achieve a high GPA though, and I've heard the engineering majors are generally very difficult, so that may be something to take into consideration.</p>

<p>A website I'd recommend for more information about pre-med and everything related, is <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>Would it be okay to do business as your major or should it be science related? I don't know exactly if I want to go into medicine or business so would this be okay. </p>

<p>Reply Thanks</p>

<p>Your major does not need to be science related; just as long as you complete the pre-med courses (see previous post for list). If you are interested in business, then major in business. If you're interested in music, major in music.</p>

<p>I have a question too about that. I heard that having pre-med for your course track is harder than doing biochemistry as a major. Supposedly biochem is more fun/ this true?</p>

<p>Again, premed is typically not a major at most schools. If you plan on going to med school, you are on the premed course track whether you major in bio, biochem, history, art, whatever.</p>
