        Recommended Courses for Prehealth Students

        Medical schools in the United States do not require that you major in a science to be admitted. They usually require students to complete a portfolio of required course work during their undergraduate career in preparation for the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). These courses often include, but are not limited to, physics, biology, chemistry, mathematics, English writing, and social and behavioral sciences. The requirements for four-year doctoral programs in many healthcare professions, including medicine and dentistry, are similar, and are standardized across most professional schools.

        However, some health professions may have variable requirements (e.g., some programs do not require organic chemistry; some require multiple psychology or statistics courses) and the requirements are subject to change. Thus, students are encouraged to research individual program's admission requirements.

        While the prerequisites below dictate the order courses should be taken, the exact timing will vary from student to student based on academic background, selected major, and participation in various programs at the university.

        Notes

        • The above are the basic set requirements most medical schools in the United States have; however, admissions requirements vary from school to school. Specific medical schools may have additional requirements or modifications to those listed here.
        • Students can use literature and writing courses at NYU Shanghai to fulfill the writing course requirements. The writing courses can't?be creative writing, but need to focus on writing or interpreting advanced texts. Students can also take writing courses at NYU’s global academic centers. To avoid confusion from the medical school admissions committee, it is best that you take writing courses offered by the English departments (with "ENGL" in their course numbers).
        • The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) states that: “In general, most medical schools will expect applicants to have taken the Medical College Admission Test? (MCAT?), and to have completed the following types of courses: one year of biology, one year of physics, one year of English, and two years of chemistry (through organic chemistry),” it is common that medical schools will include biochemistry, calculus, psychology, and sociology as their required or recommended courses.?The best source for this information for MD programs is the Medical Schools Admissions Requirements (MSAR) site.
        • Many students take the MCAT in their junior year. Students who intend to matriculate into a medical school directly following their undergraduate graduation should plan to take the MCAT?the winter or spring term preceding a summer application.
        • Prior to their junior year, students are recommended to gain some practical experience by volunteering in a clinical setting and to demonstrate a commitment to service and humanistic endeavors. Building a portfolio of relevant experiences can be essential to students’ medical school applications.
        • Students who plan to take the MCAT as part of their preparation to apply to medical schools are advised to plan to take at least two courses in behavioral/ social sciences, since a broad range of social science topics are tested on that exam. We strongly recommend?Introduction to Psychology?(PSYC-SHU 101/PSYCH-UA 1) as an individual-level social science course, and recommend that students choose a second course focused on population-level topics. Appropriate courses include?Introduction to Sociology?(SOC-UA 1),?Sociology of Medicine?(SOC-UA 414), and Health & Society in a Global Context?(UGPH-GU 10) offered in New York. In addition to coursework, students may use the?AAMC's MCAT preparation resources?as well as free resources like?Khan Academy's MCAT tools?and the?MedEd Portal, to study social science topics for the MCAT.
        • Financial assistance for medical schools can be very limited and even more difficult for non-US citizens or permanent resident students. More info can be found here.
