Curriculum consists of the following core courses and "selectives." 

Our curriculum is rigorous, having been pulled directly from our Medical School courses and taught by Medical School Faculty. This will allow students to demonstrate their ability to handle medical school course work while benefitting from additional knowledge acquisition that will assist in the transition to a full medical school curriculum.
