The MCAT

Almost all medical schools require the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). The MCAT is comprised of 4 sections:
1. Biological and Biochemical Foundations of Living Systems
2. Chemical and Physical Foundations of Biological Systems
3. Psychological, Social, and Biological Foundations of Behavior
4. Critical Analysis and Reasoning Skills

You will want to be certain to prepare extensively before taking the MCAT, including completing a targeted study plan in addition to the minimum recommended preparatory coursework (e.g. general chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, biochemistry, psychology, and sociology). Most students spend approximately 300-350 hours over 4-6 months preparing for the MCAT.  You may choose to study independently, or complete a formal preparation course.
