Students complete a minimum of 24 course credits in the sciences and humanities. Besides a strong foundation in the physical and biological sciences, it is also extremely important that future physicians have a strong liberal arts education. We strongly recommend that students include at least one non-science course each semester in order to help prepare the student for the verbal reasoning/critical thinking section of the admission test. Therefore, each semester students can expect to take three science courses and one non-science course. Beginning in Fall 2015, all Post-Baccalaureate students will be required to take a Health Care Ethics course. Post-Baccalaureate students take classes with both undergraduate and graduate students within the University.
PMHP-PB Core Curricular requirement courses include two semesters each of English, Mathematics, Behavioral Sciences, one semester of Biochemistry as well as two semesters each of the following courses with the associate laboratories: General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
