Admissions Process


Feinberg strives to recruit a student body with broad academic interests and encourages applications from students who have majored outside the traditional premedical disciplines of biology and chemistry, including the other sciences, engineering, the humanities and social sciences.
A bachelor's degree is required prior to matriculation.  This requirement is waived for Northwestern undergraduates enrolled in a dual degree program where the degree is granted upon completion of the first year of medical school.  The admissions committee evaluates all coursework completed prior to application, including post baccalaureate and graduate studies.
Required Highly Recommended
Biology (2 Semesters-Lecture and Lab) English Composition
Physics (2 Semesters-Lecture and Lab) Statistics
Inorganic Chemistry (2 Semesters-Lecture and Lab)
Organic Chemistry (2 Semesters-Lecture and Lab)

AP coursework

Science AP courses for which an applicant has received course credit at his or her undergraduate degree-granting institution will be considered as fulfilling the pre-medical science course requirements.  Applicants should keep in mind, however, that the Committee will expect to see advanced level undergraduate courses in the science disciplines for which the AP credit was awarded.
