Biology/Pre-Medicine Concentration

General Information

The Bachelor of Science in Biology/Pre-Medicine Concentration is designed to prepare students for admission into professional programs in medicine. The requirements of the Pre-Medicine program are based on the general requirements of the Bachelor of Science in Biology, specifically adjusted for pre-medicine students. Coursework in biology, inorganic and organic chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology and immunology, human anatomy and physiology, genetics, developmental biology, and physics prepares students for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and for future success in the medical field.

Admission Requirements

First-year student admission is open to high school graduates (or equivalent) who demonstrate academic preparedness, maturity and seriousness of purpose with educational backgrounds appropriate to their chosen program of study. High school courses and grade point average, ACT composite score, and ACT reading and mathematics subscores will be considered in the admission and placement process. Transfer students must have at least 12 credits at the time of application with a minimum 2.0 overall GPA including an English and mathematics course, or they must provide their high school records and ACT scores for admission review.

Get Accepted to Medical School

Being accepted to medical school doesn't come easily. It requires effort, time and careful preparation. To ensure success for our students, Ferris offers a helping hand into medical school. To help students make the best choices for their professional goals, advisors from the Ferris Pre-Medicine advisory committee work closely with students throughout their four years of study. They help with course selection and development of social, personal and professional maturity. They also work with students to match abilities with interests to find the student's most appropriate health-related career path. Furthermore, the low student-faculty ratio at Ferris means that most basic science labs are taught by the science professors themselves.
