Pre-med Path Course Sample

Students interested in matriculating to medical school need to take additional chemistry courses. This schedule sample minimizes the number of additional credits that the students accrue while also satisfying the pre-medicine course requirements. This path sample also does not require prior college/AP credit, summer courses, or additional semesters to complete. It is recommended that pre-med students use this schedule as a starting point for planning their courses.

%Concentration courses are offered and can be taken in either the Fall or Spring semesters.

$CHEM 2090 + CHEM 2080 + CHEM 3530 + CHEM 2510 satisfy the General and Organic chemistry requirements for most medical schools. Some schools require a full year of organic chemistry. See the Cornell Premed Guide for additional course options. CHEM 3530 is not required prior to affiliation to BME. These classes only needed to be taken before applying to Medical School.

&Satisfies the Premed Biochemistry requirement. See the Cornell Premed Guide for additional course options.
