Planning for a career in medicine begins with a solid, foundational bachelor’s degree and recommended coursework to prepare for the Medical College Admission Test, commonly referred to as the MCAT. At Lourdes, we suggest a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. Note that students can also choose majors such as Psychology, English or Interdisciplinary Studies with additional science courses as their pre-med preparation. It is most important that you study a subject you are passionate about and that you have achieved academic success in that program.
