Premedical psychology majors in the laboratory

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Three trends inspired this article.: (a) an increasing number of undergraduates majoring in psychology; (b) an increasing number of psychology majors seeking research experience; and (c) an increasing number of psychology majors applying for, and being accepted into, medical schools. Together, these trends create a situation in which many psychology faculty supervise psychology majors in a premedical curriculum for intensive laboratory research experience. Benefits of such experiences to students include honing of critical thinking skills and preparing to read and interpret medical research. Benefits to faculty training premedical psychology majors include the presence of intelligent, motivated students with strong mathematical and scientific research skills in their laboratories.
