A student pursuing a pre-professional program in medicine (allopathic osteopathic, podiatric, etc.) will be advised to take a number of courses in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics. Most successful Pre-medicine majors take either a Biology or Chemistry major, or a double major of Chemistry and Biology.
Although it is possible to gain entry into a medical school with a major from outside the sciences, it is necessary for a student to emphasize the sciences very strongly. The liberal arts foundation at Olivet is a definite asset to medical studies. Premedical students are normally advised by a faculty member in their major field of study.
