About the Course:

As many pre-health students on campus are familiar with, it is often hard to choose a pre-health field when starting at Cal. Many students simply lack the information that is needed compare and contrast the professions through central format and, as a result, quite a number of students find themselves discovering the benefits of one of pre-health programs late into their 3rd and 4th years here at Cal.

We aim to help elucidate and solve the problem through this decal by providing a broad survey of the medical, optometry, nursing, dentist, pharmacy, and other pre-health fields.  By the end of the semester, students who take the course should be familiar with the prerequisites of applying to each pre-health field, extracurriculars on/off campus that may help develop a better insight into the field, and perspectives of professionals and students in the field.

We pride ourselves in creating a comfortable atmosphere for our students, which include an approximate 5:1 student to facilitator ratio and a guaranteed one-on-one mentorship with your facilitator.  Students typically leave the semester with a friendship and resource that lasts beyond the semester and we are glad to provide such things for you as long as you’re at Cal!

This decal is a 1-unit course. Your grade will be graded on a P/NP basis, with your grade dependent on your attendance, activity, and homework records.

TO CLARIFY: This course and PreMed 101 DeCal are DIFFERENT COURSES. If you are heavily considering going the premedical route, we encourage you to take the Premed 101 course which goes more in depth into the medical fields and application process. Otherwise, if you are unsure or are interested in more than just the premedical field, this may be the better course for you.
