    Most university's do not offer strict pre-med courses. You just need to take the required courses for medical schools which include (but are not limited to):

    one year of general chemistry
    one year of biology
    one year of physics
    one year of organic chemistry

    All with lab. OU should have standard courses for all these that most science and engineering majors will take. Some medical schools have additional course requirements so you should check with the invidivudal schools. Good luck.
