Biochemistry is the essential basis for understanding metabolic and disease processes at the biochemical and molecular levels. Because of its importance as a foundation to medicine, biochemistry is going to be a major focus of the MCAT, beginning with the test in the summer of 2015. The course, which will be taught at Drexel University College of Medicine, by College of Medicine faculty, will cover the topics in general biochemistry, with a particular focus on those topics that are to be included on the new MCAT.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
