Students interested in medicine follow a sequence of courses that fulfill all pre-professional requirements. Most students major in either biology, neuroscience, chemistry, or biology-chemistry, though other fields are possible. The pre-medical advisor guides the students’ course choices to ensure that they best suit the students’ career goals. After taking the basic science courses, including human anatomy, most students complete an internship at nearby Rush Oak Park Hospital.

Arrangements for the internship are made by the university. The pre-medical advisor also assists in the professional school admissions process.
