Physician and Dental School applicants have similar set of prerequisite courses, listed below. One does not need to be a biology major to be premed.

One thing medical schools are certainly looking for is a well-rounded student. It is therefore important to incorporate a balance of science courses, which will help you do well on admission exams, with non-science courses that will help shape you into a more well-rounded, informed, and compassionate person. This is one advantage of a liberal arts education and a small school environment. All Gordon graduates have opportunities to study a wide variety of subjects within the liberal arts and get to know their professors closely. Medical school admissions committees seek well balanced students whose minds are open to a broad range of ideas, not simply focused on science alone.
