Mission and Goals

The mission of the pre-medicine program at Cumberlands is to prepare students for admission into medical school. Most pre-med students pursue an undergraduate degree in either biology or chemistry. Completion of either major is evidence that students have an ability to solve scientific problems and possess a broad undergraduate education in natural sciences, social studies and humanities, which is considered essential for students in pre-professional programs. Pre-medicine majors at UC strengthen their problem-solving skills while completing general education courses, as well as master skills in the fields of biology and chemistry that will be crucial for their futures in the medical field.
