What kind of classes do you have to take on your way to becoming a OB GYN?
I'm asking this because I'm very interested in this career and I would like to know which classes I would have to take if I decide to go for it at the end.
Pick a college that suits your personality and a major that interests you. You will need to get good grades in college in order to apply for medical school. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.
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
Of course you will need science such as Biology, possibly Biochemistry, and Anatomy and Physiology.
Organic and inorganic chemistry.
Basis research methods and statistics.
Ethics, philosophy, cultural studies as well as population health, social sciences and humanities.
