Kathy’s Answer

Most people who go into the medical field are Biology majors, and as a biology major, you take biology classes, chemistry classes, and many other STEM classes such as physics.

Good luck!

The best place to start is getting a good basic education and have a dedicated work ethic that is applied to your studies. You will have to complete all pet med undergraduate then apply and get accepted into the doctoral program which will require courses along with an intern program. Each h college may require different courses for pre med and I would recommend checking with the college's of your choice to make sure you get what is required.

Hi Karoline most individuals pursuing the medical field do take similar classes, many of my friends from pharmacy school or nursing school were in the same classes as me! There are certain courses required for the medical field, whether nursing, pharmacy or medical; usually it is biology, chemistry, physics, biochemistry, math courses, etc. Anatomy/physiology, genetics, cell/molecular, etc. may or may not be required but can definitely be helpful as well. I think the more complex and integrated the courses are, the more you will be prepared for the medical field.

Best of luck!

Hello,
I am a clinical pharmacist, however, when I started college I planned to go to medical school. The path is the same really. I changed my mind sophomore year and switched to pharmacy. If you want to go into the medical field, you should be sure to take biology, chemistry and math classes. You don't have to major in a science, but you have to be sure to take all of the courses required for the field that you choose to pursue after undergrad. So be sure to check the requirements for the programs that you want to apply for.
