Candidates for the MED degree must meet certain undergraduate and graduate requirements in the teaching area. Since these requirements vary by program area, it will be necessary for the student to plan with an advisor in the program area. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all requirements (both undergraduate and graduate) have been met. Each department will provide the candidates with a list of requirements upon request.
