How We Can Help
Allopathic medical students major in any discipline without adversely affecting admission to an M.D. program. There are some basic requirements for admission to most U.S. & Canadian medical schools.
Some schools may have additional course requirements such as biochemistry or advanced level biology courses. Always refer to individual medical school web sites for their specific requirements. The information is also available in the Medical School Admissions Requirements, published each April for the application cycle beginning in June.
Advanced Placement courses and/or Acceleration Credits generally do not satisfy requirements for admission to medical school, but are used to elect advanced courses in those subject areas.
Ideally, since the medical schools will judge you on the basis of the work you have completed when you apply for admission, the majority of prerequisite courses should be completed by the time of application.
