Premedical Requirements

Physicians should have a broad college level education in the natural, social, and behavioral sciences and the humanities. We require the MCAT (taken within the last 36 months) and three years (90 semester hours or 135 quarter hours) in an accredited college or university that include the specific requirements listed below.  We require the completion of a bachelor’s degree prior to starting the M.D. program however you can apply the summer entering your final year of bachelors classes.

Required college-level courses (verified by AMCAS):

  • Biological Sciences: 1 year
  • Chemistry, general and organic sequence: 2 years
  • Physics: 1 year

We accept online classes and do not require labs, however the selection process is very competitive, and if applicants take classes in person, including labs, that strengthens an application.

Technical, Non-Academic Standards (PDF) are also required.
