3Recommended Biological Sciences Electives

BIOH 320Biomedical Genetics3
or BIOB 375 General Genetics
And
Preferably take either:
BIOB 410Immunology3
or BIOH 323 Human Developmental Biology
As a less desirable alternative, take: *
BIOH 201
BIOH 211
Human Anatomy and Physiology I
and Human Anatomy and Physiology II
5/4

*these 2 courses do not count towards the 18 credits of 300+ electives

Additional Biological Sciences Electives

A total of 18 credits of physical and biological science electives numbered 300 or above are required.  The following courses may also be substituted for any of the biology courses above, but do not match medical school prerequisites as closely:

BIOB 425Adv Cell & Molecular Biology3
BIOH 313Neurophysiology3
BIOH 422Genes and Cancer3
BIOH 455Molecular Medicine3
BIOL 4094
BIOM 360General Microbiology5
