Should I go for a Hard/Life Science Major if I want to get a PhD in Anatomy? I'm currently a BS Major in Psychology. I've heard that you can be any major as long as you finish the required pre-reqs which are the same as for Med School.

However if there is an advantage in having a BS degree in Biological Sciences I would gladly switch over.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Hard." I don't think it matters what you major in as long as you do the pre-reqs. However, there is definitely an advantage to majoring in something like cell or molecular biology or genetics or neuroscience. This is only because these are subjects that you will have to take to get a PhD in anatomy. Many anatomy departments include cell biology, developmental biology, and neuroscience. When you do a PhD in anatomy, you will most likely have to do your research in one of these areas.
