Mercer University students who aspire to become physicians are considered to be on the "pre-medical track". Pre-medical students are free to pursue any major field of study, but must also complete specific pre-requisite courses before application to medical school. Students need to be aware that the pre-requisite coursework in the sciences is only offered on Mercer's Macon campus; students must apply to one of Mercer's colleges or schools located in Macon, Georgia to complete the pre-medical track. Competency in mathematics at or above the calculus level is required to begin the chemistry and biology sequences at Mercer University. Students planning on following the pre-medical track are therefore advised to take mathematics in high school AT LEAST THROUGH THE PRE-CALCULUS LEVEL if possible.
