Young Professionals Point of View: Chemical Engineers in Medical School


Chemical engineering and pre-medicine students often find themselves sitting side-by-side in science elective courses. But, eventually, we reach a fork in the road that separates us from our pre-med friends. As chemical engineers, we progress to thermodynamics and mass transfer courses, while our counterparts study anatomy and molecular biology. The divide between these two paths, however, does not leave us particularly far apart, making chemical engineering, perhaps surprisingly, a great foundation for medical school. Consider the parallels and follow this advice if you are a chemical engineer contemplating medical school...
