Health Science Major

Pre-Medical Sciences Concentration

The pre-medical sciences concentration within the health science major prepares you to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) examination, which is required for admission to medical school. The pre-medical sciences pattern is a viable option if you are interested in family practice, preventative medicine, or pediatrics.

Preparing to Become a Physician

You’re required to take classwork in biology, chemistry, and physics in addition to the program focus required of a health science major. The solid health science curriculum you will discover at Truman, along with an emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion, provide a great foundation for a physician who will be working in a rural area as a general practitioner. Students should maintain a 3.25 GPA to remain in the pattern.
