In addition to meeting the prerequisite requirements for medical school the sports medicine major provides a prevention-oriented curriculum with course options in nutrition, exercise physiology, and exercise prescription. Students will be assigned a school academic advisor in addition to the health professions advisor who will guide their progress toward medical school or other medically-based professional school (e.g., dental school). An interdisciplinary approach including nutrition, biology, mathematics, chemistry, and exercise science is included in the major. Students must have a minimum GPA of 2.50 for admission to the program.
