Any pre-meds majoring in physics? When/if asked, how do you explain the connection between your major and your interest in medicine? I'm currently a pre-med in a traditional pre-medical program and I'm considering transferring to one of the physical sciences--physics or chemistry. I see a lot of relevance in majoring in chemistry for pre-meds, but it is more difficult for me to rationalize physics. Regardless, I think I would really enjoy studying physics as an undergrad, but I still want to be able to realize my goal of practicing/studying medicine.
