This rewarding program caters to highly motivated high school graduates and other prospective students, who may be seeking a change in career. The Pre-medical Program is designed for high school graduates or college students with less than 90 credit hours, who are desirous of being admitted to a medical school but do not meet the MD Program requirements.
The Premedical Program provides students with a strong foundation and prepares them for the rigors of the MD Program. It integrates the undergraduate level of Pre-Medical studies with graduate level Medical Education.
The Premedical Program comprises of undergraduate sciences and laboratories along with post-high school level Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Physics, English and Calculus. These courses contribute to the overall goals of a pre-professional education. Medical faculty teach the final semester of the premedical program.
Pre-Medical courses are the first tier of the five-year Doctor of Medicine course and are taken over the duration of four semesters. Once the student successfully completes this level, they automatically advance to the regular Medical Program at the Basic Medical Sciences level.
Mandatory curricular studies are completed in fourteen (14) semesters over a duration of five (5) calendar years. In total there are seven (7) years of academic studies inclusive of the Premedical Program.
(N.B.: Indian citizens who study medicine at Alexander American University are required to complete their degree in five (5) years inclusive of an additional 6 months of required elective training)
