Prerequisite requirements for health sciences vary with the program and the institution. Care should be taken to study the requirements for every program well in advance of making application. In general, medical schools require two-semester sequences in calculus, physics and organic chemistry. Biochemistry is also commonly required, and in some instances statistics and literature. Programs in physician assistant training, veterinary medicine, physical therapy, and such typically have a more extensive list of prerequisites. Students considering a post-baccalaureate program in these areas should consult early and often with a health science advisor.
