Available each fall semester for sophomores. We encourage rising pre-health sophomores to add CAS FY 103 (sections P1 or P2) to your fall schedule! Rising sophomores in any school or college at BU (i.e. CAS, ENG, SAR, QST, etc.) can register.

Led by the Pre-Health Advisors, the Pre-Health Seminar is a 1 cr. specialized 9-week (ends before Thanksgiving!) course. You will learn how to identify your interests and values by reflecting on your individual experiences and through group discussions.

For anyone interested in applying to the MMEDIC program, this course will also help you develop ideas for your personal statement and an understanding of how to write about your experiences in the application.

This course is discussion based, so active participation is required to receive a passing grade!
