Pre-Pharmacy

Glenda Ferguson, advisor, Pre-Pharmacy

There is a general core of frequently required courses for admission into professional colleges of medicine, pharmacy, veterinary science, dentistry, and other applied health sciences. However, it’s important to know that the program you’re interested in attending after Wesleyan may have additional requirements which must also be fulfilled.

Before applying to medical schools, you’ll be required to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). This is usually taken in the spring of your junior year, and it’s important that you complete as many pertinent courses as possible prior to taking the test.

If you are interested in pursuing pre-pharmacy, pre-med, pre-allied health services, pre- dental or pre-veterinary medicine, you should consult the faculty advisor for these programs early. The advisor can provide guidance through your four years of study at Wesleyan and help you coordinate your graduate school application process.
