B.S. in Biomedical Sciences (Pre-Med)
Residential Pre-Med Program
The Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences (Pre-Med) program at Liberty University is designed to prepare students for medical school, pharmacy school, dental school, physician assistant school, and related medical fields.
With a broad coverage of cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, and advanced human anatomy and physiology, the Pre-Med program is intentionally aimed at maximizing your performance on the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Each year a high percentage of our students are admitted into medical schools (75% in 2018). While students interested in research have the option to take advanced courses with labs, several lecture-only courses (such as clinical anatomy and advanced physiology) were created specifically for this program.
In addition to our rigorous courses, the student-led Pre-Med Honors Society regularly invites local physicians to speak to students and holds special meetings with Kaplan representatives. Most medical schools seek more than a strong academic record from their applicants; they like to see a demonstrated desire to practice medicine, altruism, and good character. Liberty University provides numerous opportunities to participate in medical missions trips, shadow local doctors, acquire internships, and perform Christian service in the community.
Students who are interested in becoming a physician’s assistant should take BIOL 214 & 216 labs.
The B.S. in Biomedical Sciences (Pre-Med) is offered through the Department of Biology & Chemistry.
