About the Program
This is a one-year intensive, non-thesis special master's program for students who have completed their pre‐medical school coursework and wish to enhance their credentials for medical school application by taking courses equivalent in rigor to first-year medical school coursework.
Taking highly rigorous courses comparable to the first year of medical school permits medical school admissions committees to directly evaluate a student's competence. In addition, it provides students an opportunity to test their preparation and motivation for medical school. It is intended for students who believe that their undergraduate performance did not fully reflect their academic abilities and are now prepared to compete in medical school courses and demonstrate that they can excel.
