The current MCAT exam requires an understanding of additional material, including statistics and biochemistry, as well as basic concepts in psychology and sociology. It is recommended that students consider taking a course in statistics, psychology, and sociology prior to enrollment in the PBPM if their schedules permit. (Statistics is required by some medical schools and some schools include psychology and/or sociology as recommended or required.) Biochemistry is offered in the Spring semester, but students have the option of taking this course for a grade or Pass/Fail.
Students in the PBPM program will receive comprehensive MCAT study materials produced by a commercial prep company which includes all AAMC MCAT material. Additionally, the program schedules MCAT labs during the Winter Break.
