Program Information

School: Trinity Western University
Faculty: Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Pre-Medicine/Pre-Medical Studies
Description: Pre-medicine are not courses in medical sciences; instead, they are primarily the basic sciences needed to do medicine when students enter medical school. Within the pre-medicine requisites students learn about a range of topics such as cell biology, biochemistry, and organic chemistry, which are critical to any student aiming to work in the field of medicine.

The Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences also offers several courses in its pre-medicine requirements that allow students to not only be accepted into local medical schools, but also other medical schools across North America or Europe. Two majors that meet the pre-medicine criteria by incorporating core pre-medicine courses into a student’s major are the biology general program or chemistry with the life sciences emphasis. Both programs give students the courses they need to enter medical school, plus a Bachelor of Science degree.
