Pre-Medicine in the USA - Saint Louis University

Pre-Medicine in the USA - Saint Louis University

Medical education in the USA is one of the best ways to a successful career for a future medical professional. The high level of medicine in the country, well-equipped educational institutions, quality programs and internships - all this guarantees a reliable and promising education for foreigners.

The medical education system in America is highly developed and has its own nuances. What future students of medical universities should pay attention to, where to go, what programs are considered the most popular - SMAPSE experts will examine all this with the example of the prestigious Saint Louis University.

The specifics of studying medicine in the USA - study programs for foreign students


Not all higher education institutions invite foreign students to academic programs - Saint Louis University is one of the few universities that accepts foreign students. Students study medicine directly at master's programs in the so-called Graduate Medical School, while undergraduate studies are all about medical or biological sciences. Pre-medicine is one of the specialties that undergraduate students choose to become a doctor. This specialization is of paramount importance, as it is the main requirement for admission to Graduate Medical School.

The study of medicine in the United States will provide not only high-quality theoretical and practical knowledge, but also establish professional ties. Note that networking, or professional contacts, is the key to successful professional implementation in the United States.

In order to become a doctor in the USA, it is necessary to undergo a multi-stage education from preparation for education at the departments of medicine to obtaining a license and working as a physician.
