Additional Information

Two semesters of introductory college biology, and one of biochemistry and organic chemistry cover the information tested by this section of the MCAT.  Certain topics emphasized by the MCAT may be slightly beyond the scope of these courses, including genetics, human physiology and anatomy.  Courses in these subjects are not necessary; however, we will focus on these in greater depth to ensure that you are ready for them on test day.
