If you’re like most students who intend to pursue medicine after graduation, you’ll choose a pre-medicine program with a major in biology or chemistry. At University of the Cumberlands, we have you covered. Our pre-medicine program comes with the benefit of advisors who are engaged in both of these major disciplines - chemistry and biology degree tracks.  They are available to assist you in planning an appropriate course of study as well as in understanding the entrance procedures and requirements of various post-baccalaureate programs.

The majority of the professional schools seek students who have completed pre-medicine courses in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and have a background in English, humanities, and social sciences. An ability to solve scientific problems and a broad undergraduate education are also considered essential for students in these pre-professional programs. Students may choose a pre-medicine major in any subject or pursue any academic interest as long as the required courses are completed.

In preparation for admission to medical school, pre-medicine program students should obtain a broad background in natural sciences, physics, chemistry, social studies, and humanities. Students earning their Kentucky pre-medicine major should consult bulletins from medical schools of their choice for specific entrance requirements.
