Richard’s Answer

I am a physician and I majored in biochemistry.

But when my premed son asked me for advice, I recommended a degree in business. As a radiologist, I feel like I am at the mercy of any whim a hospital administrator has. But if I "spoke the language" of business, I might be in a better position to negotiate with the business majors who run the hospital.

My son chose to double major in business and biochemistry. That means he has taken 5 courses and a lab most semesters so he is very busy in college.

Having a business major also provides a backup plan for those who don't gain admission to medical school or change their minds about applying.
