Understanding Pre-Medical Programs

It is important to understand that there is not a "pre-medical major" at any college or university; rather, you select a major in any discipline (such as Medical Laboratory Sciences, refer to the drop down tab Departments & Programs) and include courses that medical schools require of undergraduates for your specific pre-medical professional program. 

WSU provides pre-medical curricula, pre-medical advising, and research experiences designed to aid students in preparing for medical school. In 2016, an average of 70% of WSU students were accepted into medical schools, a rate significantly above the national average.
