When it comes to higher education, the medical field can go in many directions. Pre-Medical ("pre-med") gives students the context and training to go on to full fledged Doctors, Dentists, Pharmacists and much more. The medical road is tough - but highly lucrative and rewarding. As with other fields, many colleges specialize in “Pre-Medical” tracks. Look for schools who have highly developed tracks that are specifically designed with the end goal of medical school and becoming a doctor in mind.
"Biology as a discipline is connected to many aspects of our everyday lives. From development and disease, to the food we eat, to the environment around us, studying biology brings us a deeper understanding of the world around us and allows us to benefit society through medicine, agriculture and environmental stewardship."
