Summer Science and Mathematics Courses for Pre-Med

Summer Session 2017 offers the following series of science and mathematics courses designed to meet the special academic needs of students who plan to apply to medical, dental, or other health professional schools. The scheduling for this series of courses has been developed to allow students to enroll in one of the Chemistry courses and one of the Physics, Mathematics, or Statistics courses during each of MSU’s two six-week summer sessions, thus enabling students to earn up to 16 science and mathematics credits in only 12 weeks. Other courses available to pre-med students this summer are SOCI 101IIS - Introduction to Sociology for 3 cr, MEDS 440 - Clinical Observation for 2 cr, PSYX100 - Introduction to Psychology for 4 cr.

Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate Program

In September of 2005, MSU received approval from the Montana Board of Regents to institute a Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Medical Certificate Program, through which students who have completed their bachelor’s degree may take the science and mathematics courses traditionally required for application to medical, dental, or other health professional schools. Ideally, this program begins in the first 6-week session of Summer. 

For more information, visit the program’s Web page at: http://www.montana.edu/hpa/index.html
