Premedical Studies

Premedical (Option)

Looking to apply to med school or another medical professional program post-graduation? Consider specializing your Trent degree further by adding the premedical option. Compliment virtually any B.A or B.Sc. degree with this new emphasis option that will help prepare you for a future in a medical profession by developing a well-rounded skill set; a significant advantage when it comes time to prep for examinations like the MCAT or DAT. Building on Trent's flexible, interdisciplinary academic programs, this emphasis can be added to virtually any Trent degree and students will have the opportunity to choose courses to complete this unique emphasis from across the sciences, social sciences (including Indigenous Studies), arts and humanities, and business and economics.

Here's how it works:

The premedical option is currently under development and will consist of a prescribed set of courses with a particular disciplinary focus that can be completed as part of an undergraduate degree. These courses are deemed to provide depth and breadth of study, as well as courses that may contain content in the MCAT.   To be eligible, students must successfully complete the requirements of both the option and the Honours program in which they are enrolled. An option appears on the academic transcript but does not appear on the degree parchment.  No application to participate will be required.

The list of prescribed courses will be released in the spring 2018.
