The practice of medicine is based on modern biology, chemistry, and physics. Candidates for medical professional schools must study in these disciplines to:
- confirm their interest in and capacity for advanced study in medical science
- enable professional schools to judge their potential for success in medicine
- meet requirements of state laws governing licensure
Minimum requirements for admission to professional schools are not uniform. Also, many schools recommend, but do not require, additional courses such as calculus, statistics, advanced biology courses, English, humanities, economics, psychology, and social science courses. Students should ascertain the minimum and recommended courses of professional schools to which they plan to apply well in advance of planning their undergraduate studies.
