Since medical schools do not require any specific major, pre-med students may choose any course of study they desire. Most students prepare for medical schools by majoring in biological sciences or chemistry, but medical schools look for a well-rounded background in humanities, social sciences and service. EIU students should list pre-medicine as a "second major" used to track student interest in the career.

All students interested in a career in medicine should consult the chair of the Medical Professions Committee for information regarding admission requirements for specific medical schools. Due to the intense competition for admission, students will need to complete a baccalaureate degree before entrance.
