The pre-medical concentration is designed for students who have demonstrated an interest in health-related fields. Most medical schools recognize the importance of a strong foundation in the natural sciences in the following areas: biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Navarro College offers the pre-medicine or pre-professional curriculum that follows the course requirements recommended by the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) and is similar to that offered by virtually all schools in the United States.
The following curriculum is suggested as an aid in program planning and may be modified by the student in order to meet specific requirements of the intended four-year program at a university. Each student is urged to consult with an academic advisor early in his/her freshman year to plan an entire Navarro College program with reference to a specific four-year program at a university. An Associate of Science Degree is awarded upon the completion of the basic curriculum leading to an Associate of Science degree.
