How should a prospective primary care sports medicince physician,go about college courses?And what major should I choose
I'm a high school freshman, that has a dream to be a primary care sports medicine physician. I plan on going to The Ohio State University,however i'm not exactly sure what I should major in to achieve my goal.
Earn karma by helping others:
You can be any major and go onto medical school, as long as you fulfill the required courses. If you're interested in sports med, you could major in Kinesiology or Exercise Science, but it's not necessary. You won't really specialize until your residency, after med school (and you'll get the chance to rotate among different specialties towards the end of med school).
In high school, take the most difficult STEM courses you can. You may find some our pre-med posts helpful on our blog: https://blog.collegevine.com/category/college-admission/pre-med/.
