Richard’s Answer

Any major is acceptable as long as you complete the prerequisite courses. I chose to major in biochemistry because there was overlap with the premed requirements and I wanted to complete my degree in 3 years.
Typical medical school prerequisites include:
Biology: Lecture – 4 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
General Chemistry: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Organic Chemistry: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Biochemistry: Lecture – 1 semester
General Physics: Lecture – 2 semesters; Lab – 1 semester
Math: Statistics – 1 semester
English: Rhetoric (Composition) and Literature – 2 semesters

You have to take certain classes to get into medical school. Everyone has to take those classes going into med school. Once in medical school you can decide to become a pediatrician later. If you go to any web site for any medical school they will tell you the 15 or so classes you have to take! Good luck #medicine school #prerequisites
