About Medicine

If you are considering medical school you will find that Rutgers University-New Brunswick provides top-notch academics, a wide array of research opportunities, and hands-on experiences that distinguish us. We also offer specialized premed advising through our Health Professions Office.

There is no specific pre-medicine major at Rutgers. Students interested in attending medical school can major in anything they wish to, from biology to religion, as long as they complete core courses that include biology, chemistry and physics set by the Association of American Medical Colleges, the American Medical Association, and the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine for entrance to their member medical schools. In fact, applicants who also excel in non-science related courses make compelling and competitive medical school candidates. For students interested in developing a strong science background, we offer majors in:

  • Biological Sciences
  • Cell Biology and Neuroscience
  • Exercise Science
  • Genetics
  • Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
  • Chemistry
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • And more!!
