This course is designed to help students as they prepare to take the MCAT and apply to medical school. The major goal of the course is to facilitate MCAT preparation. Outside of class, students will work on their MCAT content review including concept checks and practice questions and take two full-length practice exams. During class students will make short presentations on striking or memorable pieces of review content, and learn and practice test-taking strategies. In the interest of developing other aspects of students' medical school applications, students will read and respond to a book that relates to current medical culture, the complexity of changing medical systems, or how to make a lasting difference in developing countries. Students will also engage in reflective journal exercises about medical school competencies to encourage development of activities that will help their application. In addition, one class period will be a panel discussion where community physicians discuss and answer questions about their paths into medicine, and current practices. This course does not count towards Biology major credit. You cannot take this course pass/fail.
