How we engage with our health and what we expect from our physicians are changing rapidly, so it follows that practicing medicine in the U.S. is evolving as well.
These changes in the medical field have trickled down to medical school curricula and admissions processes. The changes made to the MCAT in spring 2015 represent a growing trend in medicine toward a well-rounded physician who understands how the social and psychological framework of patients influences the health decisions they make.
Students in our program are prepared for the MCAT using a two-pronged approach.
In keeping with its long history as a leading science educator, Hopkins has assembled a committee of experts from a diverse collection of fields to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of the evolving premedical education landscape. By assessing the curriculum, we have implemented productive changes in the courses that address our students’ needs.
Direct MCAT Training
Although we are helping students prepare a strong foundation for medical studies, we understand that students must do well on the MCAT to gain admissions to medical school. Since a classroom exam and a standardized test require different preparation, we offer comprehensive and flexible MCAT preparation, at no additional charge. This direct MCAT training specifically teaches students how to take what they have learned in the classroom and adapt it to the unique requirements of the MCAT.
