Hello! I'm new here as well as being new to the idea of going to medical school. This is a very basic question, but I couldn't seem to find any information on UCLA's website. I will be majoring in Global Studies at UCSB or UCSD, and because Global Studies is not a major in the sciences, I will need to take the specific courses needed to get into UCLA's med school before transferring to UCSB/UCSD (thus at my CC). Does anybody have any recommended sites that I could go to to find this information, or would anybody have any information off hand?
Thank you very much, and I apologize in advance if this is a 'stupid' question,

First off dont limit yourself to just UCLA this early, bad bad idea.

Second off pretty much all med schools requirements are the same

1 year-bio
1 year-gen chem
1 year physics
1 year-orgo
1 year- english

Maybe biochem, maybe calculus, maybe statistics, and maybe Genetics.....Some also reccomend Humanities and stuff like that.

If you have those you are set for pretty much everywhere/
