Medical Sciences is an innovative major within the College of Medicine that provides students with integrated academic, experiential, and mentored opportunities to prepare them for advanced training in medicine and the biomedical sciences. In addition to taking courses that are required for the major, students choose from a broad range of elective courses. In consultation with an academic advisor, each student creates an Individual Development Plan (IDP) that best meets their career objectives.

A list of undergraduate courses offered in the College of Medicine can be found here.

During their first two years, students in the program participate in Learning Communities which develop a sense of camaraderie while student take the majority of their classes on west campus. 

For their capstone experience in the senior year, students select either the Health & Community: Service-Learning track or the Biomedical Research track.
