Pre-Medical Program

Ever since you were a kid, you knew you wanted to be a doctor, a dentist, a veterinarian, or an optometrist. By choosing to declare pre-med at USciences, you’ll have the support of an entire team of faculty mentors and academic advisors dedicated to realizing your dream. We know exactly the kind of candidate sought by medical schools and other professional schools — broadly educated students with clear career goals and a strong grounding in sciences and mathematics. Through personalized course selection, hands-on research and internship opportunities, mock interviews, and application assistance, you will be more than prepared to take the next step.  

What Sets Us Apart?

  1. *94% of USciences students with a 3.6 GPA and an MCAT of 30 are accepted into medical school. That’s 17% higher than the national average. Dental and veterinary school acceptance rates are also very high.
  2. Our BS degree programs provide excellent pre-med preparation. All prerequisite courses for medical school are included in the curricula of most of our majors or can be taken as electives.
  3. You may conduct hands-on research as early as your first year, so you are ready for the rigors of medical school.
  4. USciences faculty members are respected, involved members of the medical and scientific community and have numerous professional connections with medical schools.
  5. Qualified first-year students can pursue a dual BS/professional degree program that guarantees an interview with one of our partner medical schools. These schools also reserve seats for our students.
