DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY at the UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER

  Preparing for a Career in Medicine at the University of Rochester

There is no formal "premed major' or "program' at Rochester; it's simply a matter of taking courses in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics in conjunction with the major(s) of your choice. Medical schools have no preference for certain majors over others. The choice of major should be guided by (1) your academic interests and strengths; and (2) the alternative career field(s) you would pursue if you don't go to medical school.
