I think you need to do extremely well to be accepted to a medical school, and having a minor in international studies may bring down your grades. And honestly I don't think it will make you better physician anyway.

The one is a distraction to the other.

Not only is there no point (as neither major compliments the other); but, most Universities would not allow it as International Studies is a B.A. subject and Science/pre-med are B.Sci. subjects.

Hi Krysten This is for the USA. Pre-med is 10-12 courses that you must complete in order to even apply to a med school. You can major in anything you want so long as you complete the prerequisites - and you better get very close to 4.0 in the prerequisites. I know one esteemed doctor who majored in poetry although most major in Biology [and don't get in so are a glut on the job market], biochemistry, biomedical engineering, and various health sciences. But, I reiterate - major in anything you want. Thinking of Drs Without Borders perhaps?
