Does University of San Diego have a Pre-med program? If so, how competitive is it?
University of San Diego
USD offers a "Pre-Med track" to gain advising from academic counselors, take the appropriate courses that prepare for medical school, and encounter necessary real-world experience (internships, community events, etc). Students who go take part in the Pre-Med Pathway traditionally go into a science field during undergrad. We also have pre-med professional fraternities that can help you make connections in the medical field. For more information click on this link:
