The Pre-Medical Committee at Erskine consists of the Dean of the College and the Chairpersons and other faculty representatives from the departments of biology, chemistry, and physics. The committee meets with pre-medical students to discuss recommended course schedules and application to medical schools. Medical and dental school requirements encourage most students entering these areas to major in biology or chemistry.
Students considering these health-related fields must meet with the appropriate advisor early and plan the entire four-year program to minimize schedule conflicts. To develop the needed knowledge and skills and to demonstrate the motivation and ability for advanced study, the student should schedule a demanding course load, normally at least two science and/or mathematics courses during each long term for the first three years. And pre-medical students are advised to take a pre-professional externship during one of their Winter Terms.
As a general guideline, nearly every medical or dental school requires a candidate for admission to have the following: two terms each of mathematics, biology, and physics; and four terms of chemistry, including general and organic chemistry. Beyond these minimal credits, different schools require various courses in the sciences and humanities.
