Premedical Studies

An excellent premedical preparation can be obtained for both MD and PhD/MD programs. In fact, the College’s technical Core and emphasis on the humanities, social sciences and the arts are assets for admission to medical studies. Harvey Mudd students completing either the Chemistry major or the Joint Major in Chemistry and Biology major have successfully been admitted to both MD and PhD/MD programs. As early curriculum planning is recommended, students should inform their adviser as soon as possible if they wish to pursue medical school.

If you have any questions about being pre-health at Mudd, you can reach out to our advisors through email:

  • Reach out to Dr. Karl Haushalter ( for questions related to academic course planning and majors.
  • Reach out to Dr. Tony Jimenez ( for all other questions related to being pre-health, including clinical experiences, volunteering and building a strong med school application. Appointments with Dr. Tony can be made through the Handshake app.
