Program Overview

For those interested in the medical field, Agnes Scott provides a unique opportunity to create an experience specifically tailored to your post-graduate goals.

The preparation for medicine (pre-med) program is specially designed for students interested in attending medical, dental, veterinary, nursing, or public health school.

The pre-health track is a preparatory program that works in conjunction with the student’s choice of major. Typically, students major in biology; chemistry; neuroscience; or physics, although Agnes Scott students have gone to medical school having majored in psychology or a humanities discipline.

Your Experience

Students may make many different course choices, but courses primarily focus in the sciences, including study in biology, chemistry, and physics. Most medical, dental, and veterinary colleges require a full-year course with laboratory in biology, physics, inorganic (general) chemistry, and organic chemistry.
