Pre-Health Guides

These plans are offered as a general guide of how one might fulfill degree requirements while fulfilling prerequisites for most medical school admission. Students should use these as a starting point for planning, should discuss options with Engineering Advising and their Major, and make use of other advising resources to devise an individual plan.

 

These Engineering Pre-Health Guides are based off of the 2019-2020 degree requirements. For the most up to date information, consult with major departments and the current Engineering Undergraduate Handbook.
