The Pre-Medicine Biology curriculum offered by the University of Saint Francis provides a solid academic foundation in biology, chemistry, microbiology, organic chemistry, anatomy, physics, and biochemistry — the courses medical schools look for in candidates.

Build Skills through Experience

Your study and exploration of human health will move out of the classroom and into the world as you develop hands-on experience and connect with working professionals.

Intern with local physicians: Because of USF’s long-standing affiliation with hospitals and local healthcare organizations, we secure quality internship experiences for our students.

Complete a Clinical Experience: Medical schools seek applicants with compassion and experience. You can complete a summer internship or a medical mission trip, like USF’s annual trip to Haiti.

Students enrolled in our Primary Health Care in a Developing Country course travel to Haiti with USF professors and alumni physicians. There, they experience the practice of medicine in a developing country, as well as work in a hospital, orphanage, and other settings with professionals from various humanitarian organizations.
