Being a current high school senior and going to college next year to study on a pre-medicine track, would you recommend majoring in a broad science such as Biology or Chemistry? How about a more specific major like Microbiology?

Asked Anderson, South Carolina

I am interested in working in the medical field. I don't have a set career in mind but I am looking at pursuing a career as a Physician or Physician Assistant. I am thinking about majoring in Biology but I was told by a friend of mine that it is better to major in a subject that is specific since it comes with more career options. He was telling me this based on his college experience. #college #biology #physician #careers #undergraduate #life-sciences #pre-medicine

Microbiology, Biology, or chemistry will all be good choices for PA school. What you want your major to do for you is provide you with the necessary prerequisites to enter the medical profession training of your choice. If you are interested in PA school, look up the schools you want to attend and the pre-reqs for admission. Base your major on which major will cover the most pre-reqs.
