There is no single correct way of preparing for medical school or other health-profession programs.

Majors and Pre-health

Brandeis University has no premedical major and does not recommend that pre-health students select any particular major.

Here are a few important things to note:

* All students are encouraged to plan a program of study that best suits their interests and goals while  accommodating the requisite pre-health courses.

* Health-profession programs do not require applicants to have any specific major. Rather, they seek well-rounded students with solid preparation in the sciences, a record of high academic achievement, and some basic preliminary experience in the field (such as volunteering in a clinical setting). 

* Students accepted to health profession programs from Brandeis have majored in almost every concentration available at the University.
