Pre-Health Information and Requirements

BME Academic Information

Students who want to be pre-health (medical, dental, pharmacological, etc.) in the Biomedical Engineering curriculum will take the same curriculum as all the other BME students, with the exception of the Chemistry. Students who are not pursuing a pre-health degree will take the following Chemistry classes:

CHEM 1211K, General Chemistry (with lab), four credits
CHEM 1315, Survey of Organic Chemistry, three credits

Students who are pursuing a pre-health degree will take the following Chemistry classes:

CHEM 1211K, General Chemistry (with lab), four credits
CHEM 1212K, Inorganic Chemistry, four credits
CHEM 2311, Organic Chemistry I, three credits
CHEM 2312, Organic Chemistry II, three credits
CHEM 2380, Synthesis Lab for Organic, two credits
CHEM 3511, Survey of Biochemistry, or CHEM 4511, Biochemistry I, three credits

Note: Pre-Health students also are required to have taken one year of English, one year of Calculus, one year of Physics with lab, and one year of Biology with lab prior to matriculating into a U.S. medical school. The Biology requirement can be satisfied in the BME curriculum with BMED 3100, Systems Physiology, BMED 3110, Quantitative Engineering Physiology Lab I, BMED 3600, Cellular and Molecular Physiology Systems, and BMED 3610, Quantitative Engineering Physiology Lab II.
