Pre-Medicine Pre-Professional Program
Most TTU Pre-Med students begin in the Pre-Medical Curriculum (non degree) and later declare a major to complete a Bachelor's degree. Medical schools accept any major, so students are encouraged to explore a major according to his/her interests and strengths.

What do I need to know about the MCAT?
All the important MCAT information can be found online at the MCAT FAQ page.
How can I prepare for the MCAT?
Our advisors recommend reviewing the AAMC Topic Outlines (for the 2011-2014 MCAT) and the official MCAT guide (~$30) while you study for your courses at TTU. Our students have found these resources and the free online resources available at www.studentdoctor.net are helpful.
What is a typical timeline for applying to medical school?
The typical timeline is described in the official AAMC webpage. Our TTU pre-professional faculty advisors understand that many students will follow an "atypical timeline," and we welcome you to our office to discuss your perticular needs and goals.
