    There's no direct "transfer" - you'll have to either i) finish the degree, and then apply to medicine or ii) apply whilst still studying the degree, and then switch over. Depending on how far you're through, you might as well continue on with the degree.

    What do you mean 'transfer'. Unless your course has a specifically organised transfer system the more accurate term would be 'quit and reapply', no?

    And yes people do that all the time.

    Finish the course. Medical schools do not look favourably on dropouts
