Majors and Pre-health
There is no single correct way of preparing for medical school. All students are encouraged to plan a program of study that best suits their interests and goals. Moreover, medical schools 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 medicine (such as volunteering in a clinical setting). Medical schools also seek applicants who possess maturity and strong interpersonal skills.Brandeis University has no premedical major and does not recommend that premedical students select any particular major. You should, therefore, plan your program of study at Brandeis not only to accommodate the requisite premedical courses but also to address your particular intellectual interests. Many premedical students select a major in the sciences. However, students accepted to medical school from Brandeis have majored in just about every concentration available at the University.
