What kinds of electives would you recommend for a premed student?
I already have a major and minor, but there is still space in my schedule for about 3-4 elective courses. I'd particularly like suggestions about humanities courses, since the majority of my schedule is hard science. Thank you! electives premed medschool physician minor
Also consider the community you might want to serve, the cultures you may not know much about, or things you've always wondered about but never made the time to research outside of school. Consider classes that could enhance your practice of medicine one day, sure, but don't be afraid to take something for your own personal fulfilment! Most of us won't get a second chance at college!
Some classes I loved that I hope will help me as a doctor:
Physiological Psych (aka intro Neuroscience)
Others that I loved just because:
Art History (any course)
Those are just examples. I've also heard of great classes like "History of AIDS" or "Medical Sociology" or even public health courses that could be useful. There is no single answer to this question though really.
Last thing I'll add is you'll want to earn top marks in whatever you choose because GPA is important for medical school admission, so keep in mind when choosing anything!
