Kyle’s Answer

Since you need to apply to medical school after undergrad college, you should choose a bachelors degree that will help you prepare for medical school. Anything in the sciences field (biology, chemistry, etc.) are probably the best options. However, there is no set path. I have a friend who went to medical school and he got a business minor in undergrad.

Kyle recommends the following next steps:

  • Research what subjects are most important to everyday work as an Osteopathic Orthopedic Surgeon (may be able to Google this) and then match that to a major at whichever college you are attending.
