    I wanted to make a thread about useful science courses or non-science courses that students could take to build skills and knowledge.

    Here is my list (no specific order)

    - Spanish
    - Biochemistry
    - Immunology
    - Human embryology (or whatever your college calls it)
    - Economics
    - English (a basic writing course)
    - Speech
    - others?

    Classes that are ok to take, but they don't go nearly as in depth as one would really want:

    - A&P
    - Pathology
    - Cell and molecular biology
    - Cancer biology
    - Medical microbiology

    1) neurobiology
    2) Genetics
    3) nutrition

    Other than that I think you pretty much covered all the bases.

    very important to take a social science course or two (your school probably will expect you to do so for general ed. requirements)
