Premedicine is a program rather than a specific major, meaning there are a number of required courses students must complete in order to apply for medical school, but they can declare almost any major. Medical schools select students with majors in both non-science and science disciplines. Regardless of major, the student is encouraged to excel academically in all disciplines and to develop strong personal qualities of leadership, interpersonal skills, ethics, and service.

In order to prepare students for the rigorous medical school application process, Baylor created the Premed/Predent Advisory Committee. The committee interviews and evaluates applicants for professional school. The Committee works closely with a number of medical and dental schools and their comprehensive evaluations are often an important component of the student's application. Composite evaluations are prepared, including a plot of chronological grade progression, teacher ratings on a variety of personal characteristics, committee ratings on academic and personal qualities, and committee comments based on the interview, personal knowledge, and application materials. Additionally, this evaluation process keeps the students on track and prepared for the medical school application process. In order to be considered for any medical school program, students must also complete the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).

Alpha Epsilon Delta is a student-led organization for students interested in Pre-Health Care programs. AED offers opportunities for intellectual and professional development, provides a forum for students with common interests, and extends a program of service to benefit both the Waco and the Baylor communities.

Baylor University offers several Living-Learning Centers, which are housing opportunities designed to place students of common interests together in living and learning environments. Baylor offers a Science and Health Living-Learning Center where students with common interest in pursuing a career in medicine and the sciences will be able to collaborate with each other as well as science faculty and medical researchers.
