Very unlikely. Med schools want to see math up through a year of calculus, a year of inorganic chemistry, a year of organic chemistry, perhaps biochemistry, and physics. None of that is likely to required for nutrition. However it might prepare you for nursing school.

Your major is immaterial to medical school admissions. Its only important that you complete the medical school prerequisites: 4 chemistry courses, 2 courses each in biology, physics, english and Calculus.

I was almost going to go to Lehman! But I decided to go to Brooklyn college.

Basically anything involving science – biology, chemistry – and mathematics will put you on the right track for med school.

Food and nutrition/dietetics does not show that you have mastered enough science and math (calculus) to become a pediatrician. Food is only a small component when it comes to health.

Good luck!

Dietetics, Food and Nutrition do not have the academic rigor that is required to be accepted to Medical School. dietetics, Food and Nutrition will not help you to get accepted to Medical School.

Medical Schools want to see rigorous scientific coursework on your academic record.

You need to take and make very high grades in (That means no less than a A in each course) a minimum of one year of Freshman General Chemistry (the course for those majoring in Chemistry, not those silly non major courses), One year of Freshman General Physics (again the course for Physics majors), one year of Calculus (for mathematics majors, not the course for non majors), at least one course in statistics (again for majors in mathematics, not the courses for non majors), one year of Freshman Biology (again the course for majors in biology), one year of Organic Chemistry (for Chemistry majors), One year of Physical Chemistry(for Chemistry majors). You should also have one year of Genetics, one year of Human Physiology, One year of Biochemistry, and a course in Quantitative Analysis at the very minimum.

Again you must make a grade of A in all of these courses if you expect to have even a reasonable chance of being accepted to any Medical School.

You should be aware that less than one fourth of all of the qualified applicants to Medical School are ever accepted to any Medical School.

Getting accepted to Medical School is extremely competitive.

Only the people with the strongest science backgrounds and best grades are acepted to Medical School

Also to have a reasonable chance of being accepted to Medical School you must maintain an overall grade point average of at least 3.8 on a 4 point scale.

You must get a letter grade of A in all of the required science courses.

If you do not do that, you can forget about Medical School.

You can get into med school with any degree, but they prefer the hard core science degrees, such as biology or chemistry. If you like dietetics you can take elective courses in that department.
