If you are passionate about a career in medicine, you know you will be constantly learning and growing over a period of many years. It makes sense to enroll in an undergraduate program that offers the rigor – and rewards – of preparing you for the journey to medical school and beyond. The Bachelor of Science in Biology Pre-Medical program is just that.

As a Pre-Medical student at Edinboro, you will be held to high standards. You’ll follow a curriculum that is heavy on the sciences, including those that are required and recommended for medical school, as well as those that prepare you for the newest version of the competitive Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).
