Choosing an appropriate undergraduate major can be one of the biggest decisions for students who wish to pursue medicine as their long term career. Torn between the passion for a certain subject and the need to outperform competition by opting for a science major, students are often confused at this stage of the academic journey.
  
Luckily, medical schools accept students from all types of educational background. In fact 50% of students who are accepted into medical schools major in subjects like math, physics, humanity and so on. Both group of students perform well in their MCAT have good GPAs and surpass the others in delivering outstanding applications.

However, the choice of a science major does offer certain positive consequences in the later pre med years and this is undeniable. 

    
Is Biochemistry an Ideal Major for Medical School?

Let us explore how Biochemistry, which is one of the most preferred science majors, impacts a pre med student and his way of learning to be a successful medical practitioner.

The experiences of a Biochemistry major as a pre med student

In the US, 43% of students who major in Biochemistry get admitted into a medical school followed by general biology (35%). Biochemistry involves a certain level of math and is considered one of the most rigorous major of life sciences.
 
A student with a strong foundation in biochemistry experiences the following, 

• Medical schools make biochemistry as a part of requirements for successful admissions. Students may have to take up additional coursework in medical school to compensate for the lack of biochemistry experience in their lower levels of study.

• Students coming from a biochemistry major have a better hold over statistical methods than other science majors and this can be beneficial in the long run.

• A biochemistry student handles the demanding subjects of pathology, microbiology and molecular biology much better than others in the course as several concepts in these subjects are closely related to biochemistry. 

• Having a biochemistry background as the subject helps understand the formulation of different drugs and medical treatments when students becoming practicing doctors.

Above all, the demand for biochemists is expected to increase by 31% (one of the highest in the life sciences sector) by 2020. Thus, if the dream of being admitted into a good medical school does not happen for any reason, biochemists have several options to go back to.

In a nutshell, biochemistry majors do find certain benefits in their learning experience at the med school. But remember that hard work always pays and irrespective of the major you choose, you need to partner with the MCAT training program and push for higher GPAs in your respective field of study in order to be accepted into a reputed medical school.
