Year 1: Pre-Medical Sciences
Students complete general education and medical school prerequisite coursework during a little over a year of Pre-medical sciences. The Pre-medical sciences component of the 5-year program offers an accelerated pathway from High School to Medical School through completion of all prerequisite coursework and the 90-credit hour US medical school application requirements within the first four semesters of study.
Courses taught include English composition, psychology, sociology, math, computer science, physics, medical terminology, anatomy & physiology, statistics, public health, evidence-based research, biology, physical and organic chemistry. Students are eligible to direct admission into the MD program at the end of Semester 4 post successful completion of all coursework.
