Pre-Medical School Track

Department of Chemistry and Physics

Students who attend and/or graduate from USC Aiken and who follow their intended Medical School's recommendations for coursework successfully are able to be competitive for admission to those schools. Remember that in addition to success in the solid coursework provided at USC Aiken with a competitive GPA, all professional schools demand high test scores, strong character, and extensive exposure to the health care field. 

USC's professional advising provides some great advice on pursuing a pre-medical school track. They provide useful information about perparing your medical school application including a timeline, preparing for your MCAT, and job shadowing - a must for a strong interview
