Any of the chemistry major tracks will provide adequate preparation for medical school. Chemistry majors from Fayetteville State University have typically been very successful in being accepted to medical schools. The pre-health track is designed for students interested in medical school and fulfills all medical school requirements. Students in the BS Chemistry track will need to take additional biology courses to satisfy medical school requirements. Students in the BS Chemistry track may want to minor in biology as preparation for medical school. Because the regular BS track is more rigorous than the pre-health track (additional calculus, and more difficult physics and chemistry courses), medical school admissions committees may rank students with the standard BS Chemistry degree more highly than those in the pre-health track provided they have similar GPA and MCAT scores. As a matter of fact, majority of the courses that are required by most of the medical schools are offered by our department (see the pre-med banner below).
