The Biology Medical Sciences track is created for students who anticipate attending Medical School or Dental School. It is designed to give the student a very strong scientific background in areas that will make the transition from undergraduate science education to Medical or Dental school education easier. You'll have the opportunity to take medical science courses such as Human Gross Anatomy, Human Neuroanatomy or Medical Physiology. You'll learn how to read basic MRI's, CAT Scans and X-rays, work with human cadavers. The degree is 130 semester hours.
That's right! When a student is in medical school, they will typically take a board subject exam at the end of each medical school course. That exam is written by the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME). These board exams are commonly known as "Shelf Exams". The scores are scaled to national averages across all medical students taking the exam. Because MC teaches many of our Biology courses at medical school level, the NBME has allowed MC to give those same board exams to our students. Our program offers shelf exams for Gross Anatomy, Cell Biology and Histology, Neuroscience, Physiology, Microbiology and Pharmacology. Some of our students do substantially better on the Shelf exams that the average medical student taking the same course in medical school. Our high score on the Gross Anatomy Shelf exam was 97 percentile, which means that student did better than 97 percent of medical students who took that exam. The shelf exams are optional. You can take any of the Shelf exams you wish or not at all. It's up to you. Can you imagine applying to medical school and being able to report to the medical school admissions committee that you have already taken some medical school board exams and did as well or better than medical students?
