Pre-Ophthalmology (Minor)

The minor in pre-ophthalmology is intended for those students who plan to apply to medical school followed by a three-year residency in ophthalmology; this minor must be approved by the premedical advisor. The minor includes courses that satisfy the prerequisite coursework of most medical schools, cover the majority of topics on the MCAT and other entrance examinations, and increase the competitiveness of a student’s application.


The pre-ophthalmology minor requires a total of 43 credits. A minimum grade of C- must be earned in all courses applied to the minor.
