Pre-Medical Studies

Did you know?

Elizabeth Blackwell was the first woman to achieve a medical degree in the U.S.

Students planning on gaining admission to medical school must successfully combine an academic major with the specific prerequisite requirements. Most medical schools are not selective in your degree. A student should select the best degree for them. Factors to consider:

  • How efficient is the degree?
  • What are your passions?
  • What would you do if you did not become a physician?
  • Where do you feel most confident academically?

If students are deciding which major is best for them, we can help! Meet with a pre-health advisor through our College of Health Science Student Services and Academic Advising Office.

The Pre-Medical Pathway is a non-degree program available at Boise State University. You will not earn a degree in Pre-Medicine*.

*with the exception of those who attended Boise State before August 2018.
