Scheduling Premed Requirements

At Gettysburg College there are almost as many different paths through the premedical requirements as there are premedical students.  There is no single recommended sequence of courses.  Two possible schedules are presented below. 

Suggested Schedule #1

This schedule is for a student who comes well-prepared in science and who wants to complete the premed requirements by the end of the junior year in order to enter medical school in the fall right after graduation.

Suggested Schedule #2

This schedule is for a student who would benefit from easing into the premed requirements.  This schedule enables a student to focus on one premed science course at a time, thus maximizing the chance for success.  This student would complete the premed requirements by the end of the senior year, and would enter medical school one year or more after graduation.
