Bioengineering

Bioengineering - An Excellent Pre-med Major

Bioengineering undergraduates typically are accepted into medical school at higher rates than physical science majors. Why?

  • They have the research skills desired by the best medical schools.
  • The bioengineering technical education prepares them as future physicians for advances in medical technology.
  • Course work prepares them for the MCAT, the entrance exam for medical school.

UToledo Pre-Med

Pre-med is not a major at UToledo. It is a track.

You apply to UToledo, choose a major and then declare as a pre-med student. Expert advisors at UToledo’s Pre-Health Advising Center can explain the details, advantages to being pre-med and how to apply.
