Because medical schools place a priority on well-rounded achievement, academic course requirements may be integrated into any major at Northeastern. Most admissions committees give no preference to any particular undergraduate major.
Focus on meeting the course requirements of your chosen field of study, together with prehealth academic requirements. If you are an undergraduate and your major is not in the sciences, you may need to complete additional credit hours of coursework, with associated tuition. It is best to identify the course requirements and plan a program of study as early as possible in your NU career. PreHealth Advisors can help in determining which courses you should consider. Your academic advisor or the faculty advisor in your major can help you plan your course of study.
