Which upper-level science "prerequisites" to take?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I've noticed that several PA schools, in addition to the core prerequisites, want a certain number of "other" upper-level science classes. They recommend things like genetics, biochem, cell biology, immunology, histology, pathophysiology, etc. I will take microbiology, A&P, and orgo anyways. Out of these other possibilities, or any others not mentioned, what undergrad courses would be the most "helpful" in preparing for PA school, to give a good grounding/foundation/background on some of the heavier topics covered in school? Or, what might not be so useful? (I know some schools require, or highly suggest genetics, but several PAs have told me they really didn't do much genetics in PA school). Thanks!
