And just like that, some people who have undergraduate degrees in Biomedical Engineering wonder if they will be able to become doctors later on.

The answer to their question is ‘yes’, and here’s how:

  5. To meet the MCAT premed requirements, BioMed Engineering students will simply have to take a few extra classes after their final semester to qualify

  7. Your grades matter
  8. You just have to prepare as well as you can for the MCAT

With the help of the steps and tips given above, Biomedical Engineering students can easily prepare to apply for medical school. Keep in mind that the journey to becoming a doctor is long and winding, with several steps before you even reach medical school.
