As a pre-med student at EMU, you'll get hands-on lab experiences and mentoring from PhD-level faculty, as well as clinical experiences with local physicians. Our program is small, so you'll have many hours of cadaver dissection experience and labs with real-world applications. You can join our faculty in their research on genetics, ecology, neuroscience and biochemistry. Faculty prepare you for medical school with MCAT test prep, mock interviews and job-shadowing opportunities. With all this experience, you will be a stand-out applicant for medical schools.

Pre-medicine is not a major, but a set of courses intended to prepare you for further study in your desired area of medical practice. Our faculty will carefully advise you on courses required for medical school preparation, no matter what your major. Most PPHS students are biology majors, but you could decide to major in chemistry, biochemistry, mathematics or an area in the liberal arts. Because graduate schools value a broad education, we recommend a minor in a non-science area that interests you.
