If you think medical school is in your future, you should focus on college preparatory classes in high school. Take plenty of science and math courses, including biology, chemistry, physics, algebra, and calculus. To prepare for your later psychology studies, take sociology, psychology, and history classes. English courses that teach you to research, write, and speak well are also important, as you will need to express yourself clearly not only to patients but also to the other professionals you'll be working with. Dr. Pierce recommends taking a well-rounded curriculum. "I wish I had taken more art and literature, philosophy, business, political science, and so forth. In other words, take whatever courses interest you."
