Pre-Requisite Curriculum


With the PMPP core curriculum, you complete the required courses in addition to to the courses for your major. If you choose a major outside of sciences, many of these courses are in addition to the requirements of your major. If you are considering a major in the humanities, we highly recommend you speak to an advisor.

*Due to the changes in the MCAT in 2015, Biochemistry, Psychology, and Sociology are now required as part of the Pre-Med curriculum.

Additional courses that are strongly recommended and may be required by some schools include molecular and cell biology, microbiology, physiology and medical ethics. Some of this material may also be seen on the new MCAT beginning Spring 2015.

It is vital that students begin researching the schools of their choice early so they are aware of all curriculum requirements for those particular schools.  The classes listed above are the basic requirements.
