USI’s pre-med program has an outstanding record of high MCAT scores.

USI pre-med students score well above the national average on the MCAT.

Our record of high achievement reflects the USI pre-med program's unique strengths. Our pre-med program combines personalized advising and instruction with advanced opportunities that are rarely available prior to medical school. As a USI pre-med student you’ll be able to:

  • Log extensive hours in our medical and scientific labs.
  • Get hands-on experience with some of the advanced technology you'll eventually encounter in medical school.

  • Take all your pre-med courses from dedicated teaching faculty—never graduate assistants.
  • Take advantage of practice MCATs, mock interviews, and other application preparation help.

USI's pre-med program builds strong relationships and mentoring opportunities

USI offers better, more personalized pre-med advising than you’ll find in most other pre-med programs. Starting your freshman year (earlier than at most schools), you’ll work closely with your pre-med advisor to choose courses, extracurricular projects and pre-professional activities that strengthen your medical school candidacy.

You'll find the same type of personalized guidance in the classroom, where USI’s low student-to-faculty ratio guarantees plenty of face-to-face instruction. Our pre-med program fosters strong relationships with mentors who support you academically and prepare you professionally.

You can major in any subject as a USI pre-med student. Some of our most popular degree programs among pre-med students include:

  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Biochemistry
  • Psychology
