Premedicine Completion Program

Sample Course Plans

The premedicine completion program should be completed in 12 months. During the fall, winter and spring quarters, students take weeknight lecture courses and Saturday laboratories. Depending on the student's course needs, intensive daytime summer courses may be available. Please see the Summer Session website for more information on summer course scheduling.


This page provides two sample course plans, but the program is flexible to allow students to select the courses they need to meet the medical school prerequisites. Final course selection and planning should be done in collaboration with the student's academic adviser.
