What majors would you recommend in college in order to become an Emergency Room Physician
I am asking this question because I am a junior in high school getting ready to apply for college and I would like some advice. #pre-med
The link below has Georgetown premed curriculum.
Aside from this, any major is acceptable as long as you complete the prerequisite courses.
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
i graduated college in 1989 and have been a family physician for 20 years.
here's what i would think would be good skills for emergency room docs.
your job is to figure out how to translate that into a college educational plan.
to me, i can see several options but you know yourself best.
