The field of medicine is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of illness, and to raising and maintaining the quality of life within our communities.

If you're aiming for a future at medical school, BMC can prepare you with a specialization in biology that includes the many of the classes and skills you'll need to fulfill med-school prerequisites.

Program Description

BMC offers courses that cover the first 2 years of a typical 4-year college pre-medicine program (college-level courses) as well as courses to develop skills needed for college-level courses.

Degree Options: Associate of Science Degree with a Specialization in Biology

Program Planning

High School Preparation: While in high school, students should pursue all the available courses in mathematics, chemistry, and biology.

Students interested in medicine should gain as much exposure to the profession as possible by observing, assisting, and gaining work experience in offices, clinics, hospitals, and research facilities.
