The Pre-Medical curriculum will provide an intensive program of biology, mathematics, physics, and chemistry designed to prepare you for a career as a medical doctor, pharmacist, dentist, veterinarian, physician assistant and other medical professions.

The program is designed to prepare students for transfer into a 4-year program at other universities in Ohio, or throughout the United States.  In planning a program of study, students should be aware that most pre-medical courses have mathematics and science prerequisites and that improper scheduling of courses can lengthen the time required to complete the degree. Students should also be aware that requirements may vary according to the university to which the student wishes to transfer. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to meet with the Pre-Medical advisor prior to beginning their program.

Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways

The Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways (OGTPs) are designed to provide a clearer path to degree completion for students pursuing associate degrees who plan to transfer to an Ohio public university to complete their bachelor’s degree. The OGTPs also constitute an agreement between public community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements and will be counted and applied toward the bachelor’s degree. Students still must meet all university program admission requirements.
