IMPORTANT: These courses are intended to help you finish your pre-requisites for CU-Denver’s Medical program. This is NOT considered a major or a minor at UCCS.
Pre-professional options offered at UCCS prepare students for candidacy into professional programs offered at other facilities. Completion of pre-requisite coursework does not guarantee acceptance into any professional program.
Course requirements are for the University of Colorado programs; other schools may have slightly different requirements. Students should contact other schools of interest for appropriate pre-requisite coursework.
A college program leading to a bachelor’s degree is considered by the faculty and the CU School of Medicine’s Committee on Admissions to offer the best preparation for a student interested in medicine. Students in the pre-medicine program are advised to choose a major and should plan to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree from UCCS.
An aspirant to the field of medicine needs a people-oriented background and good communication skills as well as good grounding in the biological and physical sciences.
